Wild Food: Crappie Tacos

One of the best parts of catching crappie is the spelling of the name. After our catch on Saturday, I had a a couple crappie dishes to share with you (Crappie Miso soup, anyone?). These were dinner on Sunday night.

After filleting them, I spritzed them with some lime, dredged them in flour mixed with some cumin, paprika, and chili powder, and fried them in a hot cast iron pan. They were served with some salsa and fresh cilantro and scallions on warm tortillas. Pretty damn tasty, pretty damn fast.

  1. Calico Bass must have done something to earn the name crappie…could it be a southern thing? How’d it become so universal I wonder. btw, those tacos look delicious

    • Y’know, I was reading about crappie the other day (love Wikipedia), and it comes from the French word “crapet” for any fish in the sunfish family. I’ve only heard them called crappie- calico bass is new to me. And they were really good tacos.

  2. Those look awesome!! Crappie and salmon are my favorite fish hands down. Currently, I have a freezer full of rainbow trout…. Now I’m thinking fish tacos with homemade green chile salsa!!! I wonder how that will work with the trout?

What do you think?
