My favorite is to take real butter and let it brown in a cast iron skillet.

Then I mix in anchovy paste and fire the heat up really high for about one minutes while mixing the butter and anchovy paste, until it turns just black. This black mixture is then spread evenly across the skillet.

Now I turn the heat back to medium.

Then I take the bluegill filet that's been mostly dried, and drop it straight on.

I watch it very, very carefully, and when it's cooked half way through I flip it over and turn the heat back up to highest setting.

This sears the outer skin, and I flip it over one more time and leave it for about thirty more seconds.

This leaves both sides blackened, and I still have the full flavor of the bluegill.

The cast iron heats very evenly, so I can do a bunch of filets at one time. The whole process only takes me a few minutes.

MMMmmmmmmmmmm!
Bruce i took some fillets last night and put them in a dish and let them soak in some lemon juice covered them with paprika, tonys, garlic salt, pepper, orgeno, and habreno pepper tabasco, and onion powder. Melted 4 wappin table spoons of butter in a fryin pan...... cooked a lb. of sausage and throwed it in a pot with 2 cans of campbels veggie soup. Then I put the fish in the skillet that the sausage came out of with all the juice and left over grease and butter cooked them till they were done and added them to the soup mix. ( of course the fillets were cut down to really really small nugget size.) Let it simmer for about 45 min on low and stir occas. You talk about fine!!!!!! WOOOOOHOOOO. I did learn that it needed an extra can of corn in it after the fact but hey....First time recp. always leave room for improve.
Being the recipient of two heart attacks and 4 heart operations....I try to keep things healthy.

In a large teflon pan I lightly brown 1 large clove of minced garlic in 2 tbs of olive oil and turn heat off.......evenly distribute garlic bits on cooking area....lightly sprinkle pan with lemon pepper and add Gill fillets.....sprinkle again with lemon pepper and cook on medium high heat till garlic browns, flip and cook for a half a minute and serve.
what kinda heat we talkin bout here Mr. Musky
Thanks Bill ! Sounds good. Showed to primary cook in hose, wife Lisa. She wrote it down and tapd to frig.. Gonna try soon. steve b
Breaded with cornmeal & flour, mixed 4:1 with a little salt. Then deepfried in peanut oil at 350 degrees.
I like plain cornmeal, with garlic in the hot oil (either peanut or plain vegetable - either will do for me, although veg is a little better, I think). Just make sure you do your french fries before you brown the garlic.
I dip the bluegills fillets in a beaten egg, then dredge in a mixture of 1 cup flour/1.5 tablespoons Lowery's seasoning salt. Drop into 350 degree vegetable oil, and they are ready to eat within 5 minutes!
Here's one for ya... Take a bunch of bluegill fillets and soak em for bout 10-15 minutes in water with a good splash or two of lemon juice and a tablespoon or two of liquid crab boil. Season em up good, cornmeal em and throw em in the oil. I like em cooked up nice and crispy...
if yer hungry enough carp tastes pretty goo....naw i usually deepfryum in some kinda fish batter dipem in eggs n milk then the batter, deep fry n eat
Ima try this with venison this weekend. Man Its ounds good!
Hey, those kabobs sound delicious... I never thought of using venison, I'll have to give that a try. I usually use steak with mine, accompanied by yellow squash, zuccini, red and yellow bell pepper (that's so pretty), onion, and pineapple. Season em up and then brush on a little olive oil before grilling over mesquite. YUMMYLICIOUS!!!

Wonder if I could roll up a big ole bream fillet and stick him on a skewer? Mabe not, but Jeremy's recipie for bream and alfredo makes a fine appetizer while the grilling's going on...
