hey guys , I caught some good size eating crappie the other day and would like some healthy recipe suggestions ... I know deep fried tastes good , but i'm on a diet and fried food is no longer part of the plan ....

i'd like to avoid cheese too .... so if you got any suggestions, please feel free to post your yummy recipe!!

thanks!!!

i'd like to find out about maybe blackened or baked to start!!!

Cant be made healthy. And not safe to eat in July. Send to me and I will get rid of them for you

I bet blackened might be pretty good. But I dont have any recipe other than fried. I'll be watching too.

Pan fry with lemon juice, capers, and a little butter. Pour the dripping on the filets. salt and pepper to taste.

You can broil them in the oven with the same mixture on top of the filets. No need to flip them. Broil until you get a slight crisp to the filets.

Grill em. Get the grill things at Academy. Spray grill things with pam. Sprinkle fillets with Ragin Blaze and Garlic powder, add lemon juice on top. Put on hot coals. takes only a few minutes on each side. We do this every other week in between frying. another great way. Take olive oil and add chopped green onions, chopped garlic, a little chopped bell pepper and sometime a little chopped cellery. Stir this around till clear and add a couple cans of Rotel maters. Slowly cook and add water when needed. Add some more ragin blaze. After about 45 minutes add whole fillets. gently mash fillets down into sause. 7 minutes at a simmer and there done. Serve over rice

With a roasted corn, avocado, and black bean guacamole. Colorful and if the slaw has a high acid base it will make the avocado feel smooth like butter.

One of my favorites is a crappie melt. Broil fillets in oven w Ragin Blaze and butter. While that's going sauté some onions and brown a buttered slice of rye or sourdough bread. Add the fish. Onions and a slice of Swiss cheese. Top with buttered piece of bread and flip till other side of bread is done and cheese melts. Open and top with 1000 island dressing

I've done white bass Amandine style, and it's amazing. Any flaky fish should do.

About how long do you broil the fillets? Until crisp? Sounds delicious.

We call them sacalait.

And they make one helluva Courtbouillon.

Plenty of recipes on Google if it peeks your interest.

Chefs John Besh and John Folse are two I like.

Not specific to crappie, but recently I've been scaling and then filleting some of my fish leaving the skin on. Then I'll usually pan sear or blacken in butter in a cast iron skillet. Takes a little practice with smaller fish. I do a lot of fish tacos, but could also just serve with some veggies for healthier option. Basically this.

Blackened is usually what I do if I don't fry it. I use a lot of butter and the seasoning with the old mans face on the bottle and I kinda stir fry it and serve it in tacos.

Ate some crappie fillets off the grill last night. Seasoned them with Zatarain's blackening season, layed them on some sliced lemons in a tin foil bed with a some olive oil and butter on top. Grilled for about 8 minutes and it was delicious!

Broiled some in olive oil and seasoning last night and sauteed some onions and cilantro and made tacos with shredded cabbage, thousand island dressing, and cheese! Super easy meal and everybody liked them! Crappie melts tonight with the leftover fillets. Kids wont eat those but they can have a grilled cheese!

Fish tacos!

Saute red onion and garlic in iron skillet with butter.
Add a little red wine vinegar and lemon or lime juice.
Add filets and cook until done.
Add in fresh cilantro, thyme, and lemon pepper when filets are added to skillet.

Pan fry white corn tortillas to make them a little crunchy.

Top tacos with feta, fresh cilantro, and pepper sauce.
