BLUEGILL RECIPES
Panfish Recipes


These fresh bluegill recipes are wonderful. Panfish are non-saltwater fish: bluegill, perch, crappies, pumpkin seeds; rock, white or yellow bass. 

This is very mild tasting fish.  When fried it is crunchy on the outside, flaky-white and moist on the inside.

With all of my bluegill recipes, you may substitute with any pan fish fillets that you like.

CORNMEAL FRIED BLUEGILLS

2 lb fresh bluegill fillets
1/8 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp homemade lemon pepper
2 or 3 shakes homemade hot sauce
3-4 cups Aunt Jemima self-rising white corn meal
1/2 tsp homemade seasoned salt
1/2 cold water
canola oil, for frying
Rinse fillets. In large bowl, mix all ingredients except corn meal. Mix well with hands. Cover with plastic wrap or plate to stop dry out. Refrigerate overnight, mixing every few hours.

Place oil in a heavy frying pan and heat to 375 degrees; be sure not to overheat oil.

Put corn meal in plastic bag. Shake 2 or 3 fillets at once. Place on plate. When all fillets are breaded, slowly place in hot oil. Fry for 3 minutes on each side or until fillet flakes and is deep golden brown in color.




If you want other fresh vegetables in this bluegill recipe for stir-fry, feel free to add those as well.

BLUEGILL STIR-FRY

3 TBS canola oil
8-10 ounces bluegill fillets, chopped
1 cup green onions, diced
1 cup fresh mushrooms, diced
1 cup fresh asparagus, diced
1 cup green bell pepper, diced
1/2 tsp homemade Old Bay seasoning
1 garlic clove, minced
2 TBS homemade teriyaki sauce
cooked rice

Heat up a wok or a skillet and add the canola oil. When hot add all of the ingredients except the cooked rice. Fish is done when it flakes easily.




GRILLED BLUEGILL RECIPE

bluegill fish fillets
homemade Italian dressing
fresh lemon
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 TBS butter, melted
1/4 tsp garlic powder
mango salsa

Marinate the fish fillets in the Italian dressing for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator. Drain marinade.

Melt the butter and add the garlic powder in a small bowl. Set aside.

Place tin foil over the grill grates and spray with vegetable oil. Place carefully on the foil and brush the fillets with garlic butter blend. Fish is done when it easily flakes with a fork.

Squeeze a lemon wedge over the fish and serve with the mango salsa.






This is a wonderful bluegill recipe. I also have a awesome fish taco recipe.

BLUEGILL FAJITAS
