    Most people would loudly say no ! I live close to a Crappie filled lake. I fish several days a week. So we always are cooking fish. For a change we bake Crappie or even Catfish fillets.

    Try this for a change.

    1 big mess of crappie fillets washed and drained.
    Place in a glass baking dish in a layer to cover bottom of dish.
    Next squeeze lemon juice on it.
    Put a few pats of real butter on top.
    Sprinkle with spices (garlic powder , salt , pepper )whatever you like.
    Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or till fillets are done and flakey don't over cook.

    We usually steam rice and some vegtables to go with this.

    Hope you like it as much as we do. Good luck on the catching and enjoy the eating.

    sounds like a recipe! i have grilled crappie before and it's good- lemon, onions, spices and crappie wrapped in corn leaves and grilled.

    Well Junior, you're right. Can't say I'm tired of fried crappie, since I don't get it that often and it happens to be my favorite freshwater fish to eat. I'd think I'd died and gone to heaven if I lived beside a crappie lake :big_smile: BUT....I think your recipe sounds awesome, and the grilled crappie that Max mentioned too. Of course, IMO crappie couldn't be bad no matter what ya did to it! :wink:

    try this for a quick sandwich.

    brown some sweet onion and banna pepper in butter
    put in a three or four filets cut into 1' chunks
    squeeze a navel orange to deglaze the pan(not too much)
    when the juice is gone put on good bread and eat.--shu

    Just saw a recipe similiar to that this weekend. Only difference was he added slivered almonds to it, then made a sauce with the same ingredients and poured over the crappie. Really looked good and could almost taste it.
