Devilled Whitebait

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Fish

 Ingredients List

  • Stephen Ceideburg
  • 3 tb Flour
  • 2 ts Cayenne pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 600 g Whitefish


Heat oil for deep-frying. Put 3 tablespoons plain flour in a paper or
plastic bag and add 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper and salt to taste.

In batches, put the whitebait (600 g in total) into the bag and shake until
they are coated with seasoned flour. Shake off excess flour, then deep-fry
for 2 or 3 minutes. Remove from the oil and drain well on kitchen paper.

When all the whitebait have been cooked, put them back into the frying
basket, reheat the oil and plunge the basket back into the hot oil for
another couple of minutes until they are golden. (Depending on the capacity
of your deep-fryer, you may have to do the second cooking in batches as
well.) Drain and turn out into a serving dish lined thickly with paper
napkins. Serve with wedges 6 of lemon.
