Here's a baked recipe that my husband and I found in crappie magazine that we both enjoy. It is a little healthier than most of the fried fish recipes and taste good!


 8 - 10 crappie fillets

1 cup plain yogurt (ice cold)

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup Italian bread crumbs

1 tbs. old bay seasoning

1/2 tsp. Creole seasoning

1/2 tsp. dried basil

1/2 tsp. dried thyme

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. oregano

1/8 tsp. black pepper

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

Pam cooking spray


  Preheat oven to 400 degree.

 Coat baking sheet with Pam spray.

  Place yogurt in bowl (buttermilk also can be substituted).

  Toss all breading ingredients in a plastic bag and mix well.

  Dip fillets in yogurt and then in dry mixture.

  Coat each fillet and place on the baking sheet.

  Spray the tops of all fillets on baking sheet with Pam and bake 15 to 20 minutes on center rack.
