What A Crappie Meal

g8golferg8golfer Posts: 845

Coworker caught so crappie fish and I decide to fry some up. Man what a great meal. Dipped it in egg yokes and then rolled it in yellow corn meal and self rising flour. Fried it in a turkey fryer in corn oil at 350 oil temp. Took about 90-120 seconds to cook. Fish was really lite tasting. Made coleslaw, baked beans, and hush puppies. Great day.

  • Very nice. It's been some time since I've had crappie. Simple is best.

    Looks great. Fresh panfish is tough to beat.

    Years ago, Kingston on Lake Ontario, when the perch were running, we had the same feast using pretty much the same technique. Great memories. The local sunfish were not the same as the crappies found in Westport upstate NY near the Vermont border. 
    Thanks for sharing.

    Crappie is good eats, it was a staple when I lived in Northern Illinois.

    @SGH my goal since I joined this forum over a year ago was to get your seal of approval.

    You definitely earned it my brother. And I'm glad to give it.

    I am sure the fish was awesome.....but hushpuppys are a fried favorite of mine. Great pictures. Enjoy.

    How come people do not post the temperature at which they cook?  Is it taken for granted?

    Love crappie.  One of the few things I truly miss from Illinois.
