I found this on a kayak fishing forum, so that's not my mom!
Don't know what to do with those big reds? I got this one from my mom:
Boil (poach) the filets in crab boil (about a cup of the powder for 6 cups water seems to work for me - add more or less if ya wanna)
Saute your trinity (onions, celery, green peppers)
Mix the trinity and fillets with bread crumbs (my mom uses that boxed stuffing, I use that can of italian crumbs) and one egg.
The fillets should flake off and mix in well (unless you overcooked them)
form into patties, balls, fish shapes, whatever
Lightly dust with fish fry (corn flour)
Brown in your favorite cast iron skillet
These things also freeze well so you can pull them out later for snacks.
