Baked Crappie Recipe
• Cajun Spice (Zatarans or Slap Ya Mama Cajun Spice)
Coat the bottom of an oven proof pan with butter. Place crappie fillets in pan, pour melted butter over the crappies and sprinkle each filet with Cajun Spice and the chopped parsley. Bake in a 400 degree F oven until the crappies are done, about 20 minutes. When you remove the crappies from the oven, sprinkle them liberally with Dash of Lemon. Serve immediately.
• 1/3 cup toasted, sliced almonds
In a resealable plastic bag or container, place crappie fillets and Lawry's Lemon Pepper with Lemon Juice Marinade. Marinade in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
In a shallow pan combine bread crumbs, Lawry's Seasoned Salt and Lawry's Lemon Pepper, mixing well. Remove crappie fillets from marinade and roll in bread crumb mixture until completely covered. In a large fry pan, heat oil and butter; add crappie fillets and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crappie flakes easily. Remove to a serving platter and keep warm. Add cream and grated lemon peel to the pan drippings and bring to a boil; stirring constantly until slightly thickened. Spoon over fillets and sprinkle with almonds.
Tip: Clean your catch and put immediately into plastic bag with marinade. Dinner's ready when you get home.

When you drop crappie fillets in, they should sizzle. Fry about 4 minutes, turn and fry on other side. Fish should be golden brown.
