Serves: 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups cooked crappie fillets
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • ½ cup finely chopped celery
  • 1 cup shredded or mashed potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Cracker crumbs, ground in blender
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

Garlic-Butter Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons homemade unsalted butter
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 teaspoons flour
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon dried dill (optional)

Directions:


  1. Mix or grind the crappie fillets, onion, celery and potatoes together. Now add the salt, pepper and egg together. Form into patties.
  2. Heat butter and canola oil in a skillet on medium-high and roll the patties in the crushed cracker crumbs (say that 5 times fast).
  3. Fry the patties until they are golden brown on each side.
  4. To make the sauce, heat the garlic and butter in a saucepan on medium. Whisk in the flour until it forms a smooth paste. Gradually stir in the milk and bring to a boil. Cook for two minutes while whisking the sauce.
  5. Remove from heat; add lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Serve garlic-butter sauce with crappie patties.
