Pillies are good eating if you can get some that have been caught and kept in good quality.
deep fried white bait is awesome too.
Aaaah, Mike, you have brought back some nice memories.

Yes, deep-fried whitebait are awesome. I haven't had them for over 15 years. The medium size ones are the perfect size.

Cheers, Buga
Maybe not close enough for you bugs but Dandenong market often has food grade whitebait for sale.

My recipe is: Put half a cup of flour in a plastic bag, add salt and a little white pepper, pop in a handful of whitebait. Inflate the bag like a balloon and twist it to seal. Shake it like a Polaroid picture for 15 seconds. Remove the coated whitbait and shake off excess flour. Let the floured fish sit for 5 mins to allow the flour coating to absorb some of the moisture, this makes a better coating when fried and doesn’t mess up the oil with burnt flour. Deep fry those little beauties till just golden and crispy. Drain on a rack or paper towel. eat with lemon juice and aioli (egg mayonnaise same same). I think traditionally the fry oil is olive oil but I just use cheap vegetable oil as that’s what I usually use for deep frying, if you do try olive oil, don’t let it get too hot as it has a low smoke point.

You guys are really making me hungry.

Love the idea about the plastic bag and the leaving it time to absorb the moisture/flour :tu:

Definitely going to give it a go. I do my shopping once a week now and there are only two places I have faith in the quality of their fish, so hopefully they have those tasty little beauties :)

I shall try your technique with squid tentacles too, we super fry them so they are crispy on the outside but still soft on the inside.

One thing I do, is use these Baskets that Ricotta Cheese come in, to strain the flour away from anything I flour

On the Olive Oil, I use to fry in it too but like you, I just use Veggie/Canola Oil now. And the Olive Oil for salads and a drizzle on Veggies or other foods.


Cheers, Bugs
