Appitizer, Striped Bass
Whitebait Servings: 1
Estimated cooking time: 5 minutes Posted By: Botumfedur

I was suprised to see this recipe in my gourmet cookbook. You can go siening for bait, and take it home and eat it too........I tried it, and liked it alot. Sure is a different twist! I am not going to recommend using the bait we catch here, although I don't see why not. I am not aware of any pollution data on the whitebait in Jamaica Bay or Sheepshead Bay - but after all, if you can eat the rest of the fish, why not these? But, being I can't be 100% sure, I will say use fish market whitebait, or spearing. I'm a freshness freak, so let the chips fall where they may!



-------------COPY & PASTE TO NOTEPAD & PRINT--------------

Spearing and sandeels - preferably no more than 2 1/2 inches in length
Fine flour
Peanut or vegetable oil

---------------TO MAKE YOUR INGREDIENT LIST----------------

Heat 3 inches of oil in a small pot, and place a handful or so of the fish in the flour to cover. Shake off loose flour, and filling a slotted metal spoon, place in the hot oil. Fry for 30 seconds until lightly browned. Drain on a paper towel, squeeze a little lemon juice on, and enjoy!
