Pat filets dry, shake in bag to coat with Lousiana Fish Fry, deep fry uncrowded filets in 375 degree peanut oil for 6 minutes... works for me!

Louisiana fish fry (blue package). Soak filets in a cup of milk with one egg prior to corn meal. About 8 minutes at 350. Should be pretty good.

For sides sliced yellow squash or whole small mushrooms.

Both have turned out to be family favorites.

Seasoned fries from Walmart and quick & easy too.

Sometimes I coat filets in yellow mustard before shaking in fish fry mix for extra crispy crappie. You will not taste the mustard,it acts as a binder to allow more fish fry mix to stick to the filets.

6 minutes seems like a long time to me. I cook them 3 minutes only because my wife likes them well done. For me, I use 1 1/2 to 2 minutes depending on the size of the fillet.

Any other opinions on cooking time?

I like them (and walleye) pan-blackened best........melted butter, blackening seasoning coated on both sides, and seared quickly in a HOT cast iron skillet (best to do outdoors because of amount of smoke it produces).

if they're mushy then i've found either they're not cold enough...or not cooked on high enough heat. I make sure mine are super cold. I'll even soak them in ice water right before seasoning. 385 for 3 minutes and they're super crispy.

I cook LMB fillets this way. What is typical cook time on each side for you? Crappie I prefer deep fried. Just personal preference.

About 90 seconds per side for crappie and 2-2 1/2 minutes per side for walleye if you have the cast iron skillet hot enough. When you can take a fork and pull on the top of the fillet and it starts flaking apart it is done.

I was a bit skeptical about the mustard idea, but tried it and it works great. Great tip. Thanks.

I have never tried crappie. Most fresh water fish in Florida scares me due to runoff, but I am willing to try from the right place.
