Serves/Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 walleye fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 1+ large bag spinach (cooked and chopped)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Mornay Sauce:

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoon flour
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup clam juice
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 1/4 C shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 C grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt, pepper to taste
  • Drops of fresh lemon juice
How to cook Walleye Florentine:

    For Mornay Sauce:

  • In saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter. Make the roux by whisking in flour and cayenne pepper, and cooking for 2 minutes without browning, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from heat and let cool for a minute or so. In a bowl, combine milk, cream, clam juice and wine.
  • Add all at once to the roux stirring constantly until the mixture comes to a boil and is thickened and smooth.
  • Stir in the cheeses and remove from heat. Let sit, stirring occasionally until cheese is melted.
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and drops of lemon juice. (If sauce becomes too thick, thin with additional milk.)
  • To bake walleye fillets:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Spread 1/2 inch layer or so of cooked spinach that has been coarsely chopped and seasoned with salt pepper and a dash of nutmeg in the bottom of a buttered, shallow-sided casserole dish.
  • Place the walleye fillets on top of spinach in a slightly overlapping layer.
  • Spoon the Mornay sauce over the top of the fish to cover and sprinkle with additional grated cheese.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15-30 minutes or until fish is barely done.
  • Serve the Walleye Florentine hot.
