I pat the fillets with paper towels. Roll in flour, then egg wash, then Panko, then fry in hot oil.

crappie are very mild tasting fish,you got to spice up your shake or batter. I deep fry at 350-375 degrees till fillets float and that no to long. Drain on paper towels and eat. Crappie fillets are softer flesh but not soggy.

Drying them with a paper towel helps the first flour layer sick before you put it in the egg wash. If you can get it in your neck of the lake try adding Old Bay seasoning to your flour.

When you take them out of the fryer, instead of putting them on papertowel, where they kind of just sit in oil, i put them on a rack, with pt underneath....then the oil falls through the rack as opposed to resoaking into the fillets......love crappie!!

If they are soggy, I am guessing you aren't letting the oil get up to the proper temp before putting the fish in, or you are overcrowding the pan.
