Whitebait

Yes, that's a very small picture - it's a very small fish. Three inches would be a large whitebait. That's so small, you eat it whole - head, tail and all. And it is truly deeelicious, and very good for you because all those bones give you plenty of calcium. The only downside is that it needs to be deep-fried, but in the case of whitebait, you'll only need a centimetere of oil (and plenty of wrist action). This small fish has a big history, which you can read about here.

These whitebait, which are from the Baltic Sea, are between 5 and 10 cms (2-4 inches) long - a big one won’t go in sideways. You get about 80 fish in a pack. Dredge in flour and deep fry for about two and a half minutes. Did you ever try...
