What’s your go-to crappie cooking technique? Do you use peanut oil, vegetable oil, lard, or what?

Please share!

All of the above!! Deep fry in peanut oil. Blackened in a skillet or lately on the griddle. I brush the fillets with melted butter and season and coat the griddle in a little oil. They get more blackened in the cast iron skillet but I can cook them all at once on the griddle!

Peanut or canola deep fried. Mustard and a little milk and Tabasco for about 30 minutes then I like the Louisiana spicy fish breading or the one with lemon in it.

Crappie tacos!! I like to blacken the fillets in a cast iron skillet and then serve with fresh corn tortillas, homemade chipotle sauce, cilantro, diced purple onion, lime, and some good hot sauce for tacos.

Peanut oil , 365 degrees , Louisiana brand fry mix ( blue label)

If fillets are tough , your are cooking too slow , increase the heat.

Usually deep fry in peanut oil. But we really like pan fried in Panko crumbs. It is a lot more work but crunchy good.

While I use all of those methods....beer battered and deep fried in peanut oil is my favorite.

Man!! I really appreciate everyone chiming in with their techniques!! There has been some really interesting input!!

I love fish tacos, and just about any way I want to cook crappie, they’d be delicious inside a double-layered corn tortilla! Up until I went to Cozumel several years ago, fish and tacos just didn’t seem to go together. Now, I just can’t get enough of them!

My wife, on the other hand, won’t eat crappie or any other fish, for that matter, unless it’s paper-thin and breaded heavily in corn meal. Anyway, I have a bunch of crappie in the freezer, and I’ve gotta thaw some out and cook it!

Thanks again for all the responses!

JR
