Grilled Northern Pike Fillet

Being from "Up North" knowing how to cook and clean fish is a must! I love bringing home a nice sized pike and grilling it right up. Most fish lovers in MN like the Walleye and it's a great tasting fish, but don't underestimate the deliciousness of a properly prepared Northern covered in butter!

The hardest part about this recipe is knowing how to fillet the fish so it is completely boneless. Since my Father-in-law (Arlin) is outrageously great at it... I've got that part covered!

Grilled Northern Pike Fillet Directions

  1. Find a great father-in-law who knows how to fillet the heck out of a fish.
  2. Convince said father-in-law to clean your fish for you (Cold Beer as intensive works well here). Make sure to have him remove that pesky Y-Bone, but leave the skin on the fillets.
  3. Preheat the grill to 350 don't forget to oil your grill so the fillets don't stick.
  4. Remember that pesky Y-bone you had removed? That makes a perfect channel to put butter in (see photo) so load that baby up!
  5. Sprinkle entire fillet with lemon-pepper.
  6. Continue to grill at low heat. Test with your should separate from meat when done. (approx. 10 min. per inch of thickness)
