One tablespoon flour
One cup vegetable oil
Prepare freshly-caught striper fillets by cutting into one inch chunks. Smaller fillets
can be cut into thirds.
Remove red meat from larger fillets during preparation process. The key is to have all
chunks of uniform thickness for even cooking.
Beat egg until scrambled and add fish. Stir fish with fork until evenly coated with egg.
Place cracker crumbs in plastic bag. Add flour to crushed cracker crumbs to prevent crumbs
from clumping. Place fish chunks in bag and shake to coat with cracker crumb mixture.

both sides fish is ready to eat.

fryer. Dip fillets in batter and fry until golden brown (2 minutes on average). Drain on
paper towel to remove excess grease. Serve with hot sauce or tarter sauce.
Spray skillet with vegetable oil. Dip fillet in beaten egg whites or

Cajun Striper (Smokeless)
Toss striper fillets in olive oil and dredge in dry cajun or blackened
seasonings. Saute in skillet with a little more olive oil on a medium to medium-high
setting until fish turns "white." This takes approximately 6 to 10 minutes per
side. It is best to just turn the fillets once halfway through cooking.
