Grilled Crappie – My Favorite

If you love to catch and eat crappie you might want to try this way of cooking them. there is very little mess and my favorite way to cook them now. I love fried crappie by I seldom fry them now unless I’m cooking them for my friends or family gatherings.

Ingredients you will need:

  1.  Aluminum Foil
  2. Cajun Injector: Lemon Pepper Seasoning
  3. Cajun Injector: Cajun Shake
  4. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  5. Morton’s Lite Salt

Go ahead and pre-heat your gas grill to 400*.

Take your crappie fillets and pat them dry with a paper towel and lay them on  piece of aluminum oil as in the photo below.

Take the Cajun Shake seasoning and coat the fillets with a very heavy coat of seasoning.

Turn over the fillets and sprinkle on a little of Morton’s Lite salt. Then dribble on the Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Now cover the fillets with a very heavy coat of Cajun Injector Lemon Pepper seasoning. I don’t think you could add too much.

Now take a second piece of aluminum foil and place on top of fillets and double fold the sides to form a sealed pouch.

Place on grill for 5 minutes then flip over and grill on other side for 3 minutes. The pouch will swell up as the cooking steams and grills the fish. Take off grill and carefully unfold the aluminum foil be careful as it will be hot. The crappie fillets will fall apart as the fish of a crappie is very delicate.

Serve with the condiments you like and enjoy. I usually only eat the crappie but you could do fries, Tater Tot’s or sometimes I roast potatoes in the oven to serve with them. The only mess is the aluminum foil just throw it away.
