Crappie Cakes Feature Recipe

Have you ever eaten crab cakes? These are better.

It’s the same basic idea, but I use fresh crappie filets instead of crabmeat. This recipe is off the hook (no pun intended)! It takes a little work, but it is worth it!


1 Pound fresh crappie fillets

3/4 Cup bread crumbs

1 egg

1 Teaspoon Coughlins seafood spice

1/4 Cup finely chopped red bell peppers

1/4 Cup finely chopped onions

Dash of Worchestershire sauce

1/4 Cup mayonnaise

1 Teaspoon dry mustard spice

half stick of butter

1 Tablespoon olive oil


Cooking instructions:

• Dice onions and red bell peppers

• Combine ingredients into mixing bowl (not the oil and butter)

• Hand mix ingredients, then form patties (should make 4-5 patties)

• Heat oil and butter in black iron skillet

• Place patties in skillet, and reduce heat to medium

• Cook patties 7-9 minutes per side (depending how thick they are)

• Serve over lettuce with a nice roumelade or mustard-based sauce
