3 lb Freshwater catfish fillets\,
-cooked and flaked (I cook mine in the microwave for about 3 minutes each side - no seasoning needed at this time)
1/2 c Finely chopped onion
1/2 c Finely chopped green pepper (I use jalapenos de-seeded)
1/4 c Lemon juice (I sub zesty lemon seasoning)
3/4 c Fine, dry breadcrumbs ( I use saltine crackers crumbled)
2 Eggs, beaten
1/2 c Milk
2 ts Spicy brown mustard
2 ts Salt
1/4 ts Pepper
1. Combine ingredients in a large mixing bowl; mix well. Shape into 1-inch balls. (At this point, balls may be frozen: when ready to use, partially thaw and fry as directed below.)
2. Fry croquettes in 2-inch deep hot oil (370) until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with cocktail or tartar sauce. Yield: 5-1/2 dozen.

They are good, I usually make them up a day ahead of time & put in the fridge to help firm them up, whatever is left goes into small baggies, usually 9 patties per quart size so they stack nicely. These can be pulled out of the freezer & put right into hot grease. I have tried these with crappie as well as eaters & 10 - 15 lb cats & cannot tell any difference. I have served these next to fried crappie & they were always chosen as better.

Alrighty Don, F Troop does expect to see some of these tasty morsels so that an appropriate empirical analysis can be made to justify or deny such claims as "they were always chosen as better" icon_exclaim icon_biggrin

Freakin awesome!!! I made this recipe a few weeks ago, and had enough to bag some and have had it a couple of times since. I used the jalapenos and it was perfect. But, they will remind you that you ate them in an hour or two  icon_redface  But they are worth it. I call them my schweddy balls  icon_razz

I had a small batch of fish that needed to be cooked, so I guess-to-mated on the amounts.  I fried one up as a tester and put the rest in the freezer to firm up a little.  I ate half and gave the other half to my wife.  Very good.  I will be cooking the rest up over the weekend. 

Thanks Don!!!

Your welcome, haven't tried this one yet but saw it on HuntFishCook & will be trying it soon, sure looked good on TV, will probably use fillets instead of scaled.

* Fried Whole Crappie with Parmesan Peanut Crust
Ingredients  7 – 10 crappie. cleaned and dressed with heads removed
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/ cup dry roasted peanuts, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup buttermilk
peanut oil for frying
-----------------------------------------------
Spicy Tartar Sauce
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish (or better yet… Wickle’s Hoagie Relish
1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
1/4 teaspoon creole seasoning
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Combine all ingredients.
Instructions  In a shallow bowl mix bread crumbs, cornmeal, Parmesan cheese, ground peanuts, salt, and pepper. Coat each fish with flour, then dip in buttermilk, then coat evenly with crumb mixture.
