I took a bunch of crappie I caught recently and made some crappie ceviche at my fishing crazed buddy Bryan's recommendation. I make ceviche often with shrimp and but had never done it with fresh water crappie. Crappie is my favorite fresh water fish, so I was willing to try it. Boy am I glad we did!
