Smoked crappie fillets
« on: September 14, 2017, 09:05:43 AM »

Crappie are best smoked in a fish basket so they don't fall apart. Being a very mild fish they require a mild smoking wood. I've found the fruit woods such as Apple, Peach and Cherry work the best. I put no heat under the fish until the very end. They will slowly cook and "cure" in the smoke. About .5 hours of smoke is enough. The smoke also makes them last longer in the refrigerator. You may use a rub on the crappie if you wish. Lemmon/pepper or cajun spices taste good as a rub.
For you calorie counters, this has a very good taste without the grease of fried fish.

Sound good Wizard and I have a bunch of Crappie in my freezer that I caught on my trip a couple of months ago. I had baked crappie but never tried smoking it. I will have to go out in the garage and dig out my smoker.
