postheadericon Pan-Fried Bass Balls


After a successful day of fishing, while enjoying some beverages on my Dad’s patio, we came up with this recipe for bass balls.


  • 2 medium-large fillets lake bass
  • 1 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 fresh lemon


Combine flour, lemon pepper seasoning, crushed red pepper, garlic and dried parsley in a small bowl.

Take the bass fillets and cut them into small pieces.  Soak in milk for 20 minutes

Take pieces of bass out of milk and form into small balls.

Heat butter in a frying pan on medium heat

Once butter is melted, add the juice of 1 lemon

Pan Fry bass balls until golden brown and crispy

Serve with toothpicks

Roll the bass balls in the flour mixture
