Tiny Whitebait Fritters with Salt, Pepper & Lemon Recipe


INGREDIENTS

2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1/3 cup whitebait (defrost in a covered sieve over a bowl in the fridge if using frozen)
vegetable oil
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
salt and black pepper
lemon halves to serve
green salad dressed with lemon and mustard olive oil dressing, to serve

METHOD

Using a fork, lightly whisk the eggs, baking powder and salt together, finally adding the whitebait.
Pour a shallow layer of vegetable oil into a large, hot pan. Spoon whitebait mixture into the oil to make 6 small fritters.
Cook for 1 – 2 minutes on each side, turning once carefully using a fish slice.
Serve on cocktail napkins with chopped parsley and salt and pepper, and a small lemon wedge each to squeeze over.
Serve immediately. Repeat with remaining mixture.

Serves 6 (makes about 18).
