Folks, you get a couple Texans together, fishin' on a pond, and I guarantee the thing they'll be talking about as they head to shore is cookin' what's on the stringer.
I've been out on the lake with Seth Vanover, and here are a couple of our favorite crappie recipes:
Seth's Favorite Grilled Crappie
- Crappie fillets
- Favorite seasoning
Preheat the grill. Place the crappie fillets on the foil, drizzle with butter, and sprinkle with seasoning. Make the foil into a pouch. Place on the grill for seven minutes. Do not turn! Dig in!
Note: Do not overcook. The fish will get rubbery.
Luke's Favorite Deep Fried Crappie
- Louisiana Hot Sauce
Preheat the deep fryer or skillet. Mix hot sauce with buttermilk. Mix half flour and half cornmeal. Dip fillets in buttermilk. Dredge in cornmeal/flour mixture. Fry.
