  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 pounds small smelt fish
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • oil


With your hands, gently pry open the head of the fish and gently pull the gills along with the entrails. Rinse under cold running water and drain well.
In a bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Dredge smelt fish in flour mixture to completely coat.
In a pot over medium heat, heat about 2-inch deep of oil. Add fish, shaking off excess flour, and deep-fry for about 3 to 5 minutes or until golden and crisp. Remove from heat and drain in a colander set over a bowl. Serve hot.
