    You won't believe this one. I meet someone the other day talking about fixing crappie to taste like shrimp. I was a little skeptical about doing this but I tried it and it is the closest thing to shrimp.
    After you fillet them out I cut mine into around 2 inch chuncks.
    Next you get two bowls fill one with dry pancake mix and the other with 7 UP and he said only 7 up.
    Now put the fillets in the dry mix and then into the 7 UP and Back into the dry mix and begin frying them on the stove in what ever oil you like.
    I used peanut oil and turned out well. Serve with cocktail suace and you can fool your friends...

    I don't believe I would mess with anything that already taste that good. Maybe it's just me but I think they are near perfect just rolled in corn meal and deep fryed.

    Trust me, I've had fresh fish all winter. I work at a Power Plant with a warm water arm and have unrestricted access to the best spots, it was time to try something different. I would try it again, as my wife likes shrimp and it gave me another good excuse to go fishing.

    Well that does sound interesting. I really like crappie rolled in cornmeal and off the grill, so I guess I could give it a try. I'll try darn near anything once.

    When we get tard of fryed fish, we filet them then grind them up,then we add dice unions and peppers,mash up saltines, a couple of eggs and flour, add salt and pepper to taste, make into patties. You can bake or fry these.

    I have a freezer full of crappie. I fry, grill, and bake just to keep things interesting. I'll definitely try the "shrimp" recipe. Many thanks.
