Crunchy Fried Smelt

img_3871

A spur of the moment made-up recipe that worked well. Writing and sharing the recipe so I don’t forget.

  1. 1 bag frozen Smelt (thawed out)

  2. 1 teaspoon each turmeric, chili powder, coriander and salt [you can add any spice mix of your choice, for example, Cajun would be tasty too]

  3. 1/2 cup of besan (chickpea flour) and 1 cup flour [rice flour would work too]

  4. Combine the ingredients. The fish holds so much water that adding water isn’t necessary. In fact, you may need more flour for the batter to stick to the fish.

  5. Shallow fry in vegetable oil or olive oil.

Serve hot sprinkled with lemon and salt. Dipping sauce of your choice.

Enjoy!
