Favorite breadings for crappie? Always looking for new recipes
Yellow cornmeal, salt, pepper, little dash of season salt....
Well, ill tell you after this weekend.. goin to the lake house and hopin i cath a nice mess of em.. But really, i dont have anything "special" guess i should prolly try someting fancy, but i just use the same ole same ole store bought breading...
Store bought is ok too... just trying to get a feel for what everyone uses.
Uncle Bucks from BP just aint too bad in a pinch.....
Zataran's, thought it was the only breading! I think Parker's with me on this one but I'm not sure about that.
Andys( Red )seasoning...
Yellow corn meal, salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne pepper.
The real "key" is to dip those fillets in buttermilk before deep frying. Keeps them moist and the coating comes out perfectly, you don't lose anything.
I really didn't think the oil mattered UNTIL I tried peanut oil.....man that stuff is fantastic.
There ya go caf4! That's the way to good fish!
I eat a lot of Zataran's stuff, especially red beans and rice....but for the fish, I prefer Salt-free Louisiana fish fry with a TON of Louisiana Cajun Season added.
And since I'm on the topic of this brand, NO FOOD IS BETTER than chunks of wild turkey breast dipped in Louisiana Chicken Fry.
Cavenders is a good Seasoning... Strawberrys is another good Seasoning. I often mix a dash of both in with white Cornmeal before frying.
Have any of you ever tried Hillbilly Joe's, from down around VanBuren, Mo? They used to have a booth at the classic every year....that cornmeal mix they have is the best!!!
gotta love that cavenders seasoning.... I use it on just about everything.
Gotta use peanut oil for the best results for sure...
andys with alittle extra corn meal and pepper. Real lard ain't bad for frying fish (or cloggin arteries)
I'm partial to "Tony Sachers" Cajun seasoning and peanut oil as many others here have mentioned. However, if I'm feeling REALLY ambitious....
I'll hand-crush saltine crackers and mix it with a small amount of corn meal, cayenne pepper and Tony Sachers cajun seasoning for the breading. Then dip thos little puppies in buttermilk and fry'em up in peanut oil.
It'll make your toung slap your brains out they are so good!
Fish Fry tomorrow at Edbows super bowl party...
Andy's original or red is all I use and man does it fry up well
Dowd's catfish mix
Dowds can be found in Joplin, Mo , Neosho, Mo,and somewhere between springfield and stl.
There's a man wth good taste. Nothin' goes better with wild game than good 'ol cajun seasoning. As a matter of fact any kind of meat is better with cajun seasoning.
Corn meal, salt, pepper, and cayenne.
As caf4 mentioned. Dip in buttermilk b4 coating.
It is sacriledge to fry crappie in a batter that will kill the taste. :bangin:
I have tried Peanut oil, din't like it. Leaves the crappie with a heavy taste or coating. :cool3:
I buy my grease (corn oil) from a restaurant in a 5 gal jug. It is a commercial grade. Much lighter and withstands the heat better than store bought.
