Prepare your Crappie Fillets
Clean and dry your fillets
Fill a 1 gallon Zip Lock bag with 1 bag of "Pride of the West" all purpose batter mix
*Crack two eggs into a bowl and mix with regular milk or almond milk
*Soak your crappie fillets in the egg/milk wash
*Remove the fillets and drop into Zip Lock bag with batter mix
*Shake the bag until all the fillets are evenly coated
*Remove Crappie fillets and place on a cookie sheet
*Repeat process until all the fillets are coated.
Season fillets with Tony Chachere's Creole seasonings
( I also season some with "Slap YA Mama" seasonings)
Fill a cast iron skillet about 1/4" with Acacado oil -
It's better for you and won't burn.
Heat the oil and cook the fillets until golden brown.
Set up a taco bar with the
Crappie fillets, shreddded cabbage, tortillas + Baja sauce and Enjoy!!!!
