Fried Whitebait "Marides Tiganites"
This is what my best
friend affectionately calls "Greek French Fries".
|1 kilo of small to
medium sized whitebait
||Olive oil for
|1 cup flour
|salt & pepper
Wash the whitebait and let them
drain. Do not gut them nor remove the heads. I know, sounds
weird, but trust me, these are good! In a deep skillet, heat
the oil - it has to get really hot. Put the flour in a bowl
and season with some salt and pepper. Coat the whitebait with
flour, shake them a little to remove any surplus and fry.
When they brown, they're ready.
Serve them with lemon juice squeezed over them. To eat them,
just pop the whole thing in your mouth!
Susie's Note: I'm not much of a "Fish Fan"
but I have to admit that these are really tasty. And I have
also found that the smaller the whitebait, the better because
they get really crispy.
