These sustainable fish are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and are best deep-fried to seal in the succulence. Whitebait taste wonderfully fresh but can be cooked in any manner. It takes less than a minute to cook. Simply toss them in seasoned flour and shallow-fry in butter until crisp and golden brown. Serve with lemon wedges and bread and butter to mop up the juices. 454g whitebait is a good size for portioning out and serving, providing you with nuggets of goodness. With plenty of flavour on their own they don’t need much adornment so we have given them a little sprinkle of sea salt and chive oil, but using the right oils to finish them nicely is an art.
Whitebait, with its delicious flavour, is a great treat for your taste buds. The delicate and fine texture of whitebait makes them an incredible treat for any seafood lover. These tiny fish are usually smoked, fried or steamed in batter with chutneys and spices to bring out their natural flavour. These treats are just one of the many types of seafood we have to offer here at Frozen Fish Direct.
