Serves: 2-4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes


  • 1 pound crappie fillets
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper spice
  • 2 teaspoons fresh-ground black pepper

  1. Sprinkle a mixture of the other ingredients on the fillets after lightly coating them with olive oil. Cover and allow to sit in the refrigerator while you fire up the grill.
  2. Lightly coat the grill or cooking grates with olive or canola oil to help keep the fish from sticking.
  3. Grill each side for about 2 minutes until the fish begins to flake easily with a fork.
