Crappie Recipes

These are recipes for a fish called Crappie, not a selection of "crappy" recipes!

White Crappie

Crappie Parmesano

    All the fresh Crappie fillets you can come up with.

    ¼ cup butter

    Grated parmesan cheese. Fresh obviously is best, but you can use some Kraft brand if you want.

    Seasoned salt to taste

    ½ cup Realemon lemon juice

    Green bell peppers, diced fine

    1 medium onion, diced fine

Start the old grill up and get it ready for business!

Make a small dish from aluminum foil.

Cover the bottom with some lemon juice.

Add your Crappie fillets. One or two per foil dish is recommended, so make as many "dishes" as you need.

Top each fillet with butter (be generous now!), and dust with a little seasoned salt to your personal taste.

Now lightly sprinkle with some parmesan cheese.

Add the vegetables and cover completely with more foil.

Put on the HOT grill and let cook for about 5 minutes per side.

Fork-test the fish (it should flake easily with light pressure), drain off the drippings in the foil, and serve with some Fava beans and a nice Chianti.

I got the serving suggestion from a doctor friend of mine.

Black Crappie

Cajun Crappie Cuisine

    At least 1 Lb of fresh Crappie, cleaned, boned, and fileted

    1/4 c. Vitamin D whole milk

    1/2 c. unbleached flour (pancake mix will work just as well, folks)

    1 large egg

    1 c. corn meal

    1 tablespoon Cajun spice

    1/2 teaspoon iodized table salt

    1/4 teaspoon black pepper

In one bowl, combine the flour, milk, and egg. We'll call this bowl #1

In another small bowl, combine cornmeal, Cajun spice, salt, and pepper. This will be bowl #2.

Wet the fillets entirely in bowl #1. Cover them with the contents of bowl #2.

Add the breaded filets to a hot pan (or skillet) coated with cooking oil (preferably virgin olive oil).

Cook till both sides are a nice looking golden brown color.

For a little more of the HOT!, serve with Tabasco sauce.

For a righteous southern style Cajun meal, put some cornbread or homemade biscuits on the table right next to the steamed okra.
