Permitted use provided by: MissHomemade.com
- 1 lb crappie fillets
- 1 cup beer
- 3 cups flour
- 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1-1/2 tsp oregano
- 1-1/2 TBS garlic powder
- 1-1/2 TBS onion powder
- 1/2 tsp basil
- 1-1/2 tsp homemade cayenne pepper, or to taste
- 1-1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1-1/2 tsp kosher salt
- Orange Crush soda
Place the above ingredients in a bowl and mix. Whisk in enough orange crush to make a batter.
In a large heavy skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat 2-3 inches of canola oil to 375 degrees.
Dip the fillets in the beer and then coat completely with the batter. Fry until golden brown and drain well on a paper bag. Serve with lemon wedges, tartar sauce and hot sauce.
