Potato Crusted Crappie

For supper last night I put together one of my favorite fish dishes with some fresh crappie. This works great on all white fish.

I set up a breading station with some unseasoned all purpose flour in one bowl and 2 eggs whisked in another. (This recipe coated 10 filets)

For the hashbrowns I purchased some of the simply potato fresh shredded hashbrowns from the grocery store and used about 2/3's of a bag. To these I added...

2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp Von Hanson's house seasoning (Lawry's or your favorite seasoning salt will work fine)
1.5 Tbsp grated Parmesan

Mix this together in a separate bowl or pie tin. I only dredge 1 side of the fillet when I do these to avoid overcooking the fish as it takes a bit of time to get both sides crispy if you go that route.

Go flour on 1 side to the egg wash on the same side and into the hashbrowns to get your potato crust to stick. Cook these on an electric skillet with butter at 325 degrees until the hashbrowns are crispy. Flip and cook for 1 more minute. I like to use Bertolli Alfredo sauce with this as well. I put the heated sauce on the plate and the fish over the sauce to keep the hashbrowns crispy. Serve with you favorite sides.

This recipe can also be done as a casserole where you can put your raw fish in a pan, add the Alfredo sauce over the fish. Mix your seasoning with the hashbrowns and cook the hashbrowns until crispy. Place those on top of the fish in the casserole dish and finish in the oven at 350. This is a lot less work if your cooking for a crowd!
