Grilled Crappie

December 7, 2006

     If your from the South, you should know about crappie.  Crappie is a highly sought after panfish here in Texas.  It is a 100% white meat fish.  They are preferred to be fried in my household.  We like to mix it up a little, and bake or grill every once in a while. 


  • Crappie fillets
  • I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spray
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Garlic Powder (I use granulated garlic)
  • Kosher Salt

Pre heat grill.  Spray crappie fillets with “butter” spray.  Sprinkle salt, pepper and garlic on the fillets.  Turn fillets and repeat.  Place fillets on grill perpendicular with the grates.  Close lid and cook 2-3 minutes.  Carefully flip the fillets with a wide thin spatula.  Close lid and cook another 3 minutes, or until fish flakes. 

*You can place fillets on foil with holes poked in to help keep from sticking to grill grates.
