This recipe was passed on to me by a co-worker. My husband fishes so much so we are always trying new ways to cook our fillets.
This is approximately the amounts I use, but it's easy to adjust and so quick to make.

How to Make Baked Crappie Fillets


  1. Spray 9 x 12 baking dish with Pam or other sprays
  2. Layer fillets in dish, (can add more than 7 if cooking for more than a couple). Coat each fillet good with the Ranch Dressing. Again may take more than 1/2 cup of the dressing if more fillets added.
  3. Sprinkle the garlic salt over the fillets.
  4. Crush as many of the potato chips needed to completely cover the fillets..just need a light layer over them
  5. Top with shredded cheddar cheese. I have found to keep the cheese from getting too cooked I will bake the recipe first then add cheese just last few minutes of baking time.
    Bake at 325 for approximately 15 min or until fish is tender.
