Corn Meal Crusted Crappie Recipe

Crappie filets (about 1 pound)
1 cup yellow corn meal
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
2 eggs
corn oil for frying
Combine Corn Meal, flour and spices in a small bowl, mix well. Beat the eggs in another bowl. Remove skin from the Crappie filets and wash with cold water. Dry the filets with paper towels. Dip one by one, the crappie filets into the Corn meal mixture and set aside. Then dip one by one, into the egg and dip again into the Corn Meal mixture to get a thicker coating. Place the coated filets on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to one hour (this will help bind the coating to the filets). In a large frying pan, heat the corn oil, 1/4 inch deep, to about 375 degrees. Carefully place the chilled coated filets into the hot oil. Fry filets till golden brown on both sides. Place cooked filets on paper towels to drain excess oil. Serves two.
