The Craft of Cooking Crappie: Crappie Salad

Posted: October 2nd, 2013 by Bill Dance

I love fall fishing for bass of course, and oh yeah, crappie as well. And the latter, I really like to eat. With that in mind, here is a crappie recipe that might interest you, should you sack some slab crappie as fall fishing improves:

Special Fried Crappie (with dipping sauce)

Two to four, 8-ounce fillets
Dash McCormick buttered salt
Dash Pepper
3 T mayo
3 T diced celery
3 T dill pickle, diced
3 T onion, chopped (optional)

Cook fillets in microwave 2 1/2 to 3 minutes at a high setting.
Determine if fish is cooked by placing fork into fillets. The fillets should flake. Sprinkle fillets with McCormick buttered salt and pepper.
Once cooled, place the fillets in a 2-quart mixing bowl and add mayo, diced celery, dill pickles, onions (optional) and mix.
Serve with lettuce leaves in a dinner salad, as an appetizer or use for sandwiches.
(On a Ritz cracker is pretty darn good!)
Serves 4 to 6

As always, catch one for me!
