How many ways do you cook your crappie?

What's your favorite?

Would this be a good topic for a few how to vids?

I tried you method of blackened crappie from the video you posted, (except I used outside black stone grill) ordered the same seasons from Amazon. Turned out great my son had never ate crappie like that.

No doubt a must to cook outside although we didn't have the tools to do so when I recorded this fun to make vid....

I'll be doing a redo on this one for sure.....

Although fried crappie is one of the most enjoyable ways of eating crappie I've been baking or blackening a lot more just to eat healthier.....

Fried, salt pepper and cornmeal. Very tough to beat. Especially with French fries and or hush puppies.
We bake in the oven some also. Lemon and butter. Just takes a few minutes.
Need some pretty thick filet's for blackened. I have eaten it blackened but have not tried cooking it myself.

Little flour, egg wash, light panko, salt, pepper.
Fry in oil, broil a bit, with fried onions and tomatoes...
Just like George Perry’s recipe when he ate the world record bass...
(Except for the panko)... and he probably used lard...
I like seasoned rice with it too...

That baking and blackening has really got my attention right now especially with eating semi healthier...... So many great seasonings to go with that awesome clean fish taste of crappie.....

Fried is my favorite, but that is a given for most.

One of my second favorite ways is to make a Thai Curry with it and serve it over rice.

Red Thai Curry Stew
2 tbsp of light oil (rice bran or canola)
1/3 cup of thai red curry paste
2 cans of coconut milk
some soy sauce
*some of you favorite veggies = 3-5 cups when chopped. I use julienned onion and red and green pepper as a have to have and then add chopped asparagus, snow peas, broccoli and sliced carrots if i have some or if it sounds good that day.....
6 fillets of crappie

Garnish
wedge of lime
crushed red pepper flakes
Sriracha sauce
Fresh cilantro
Fresh mint

Heat the oil in a deep skillet/pot and then add in the red curry paste. Let that heat up and start to smell good for a minute or two. Then stir/whisk in the 2 cans of coconut milk until fully combined. Add in your veggies. Continue to cook until they are as tender as you prefer, but I like them pretty crisp and not limp ,but you do you. lay in your crappie fillets either whole or very large chunks. Just use a spoon to make sure they are submerged because if you stir it around too much they will break all to pieces.

You could pretty much remove from the heat as soon as you set the fish in because they will cook through from the residual heat, but you could leave it on the burner for a minute or two just to macke double sure it is cooked as done as you like.

Done. Serve it over a bed of steamed rice and garnish with some or all of the recommended garnish items.

Larapin.
