Alot of people go crazy here over whitebait. Its ridiculously expensive like $170 per kg. But i have good friends that love to sit all day long along river banks and catch these small fish. So when my friend had about a bag full i suggested i would come over for lunch and make them into white bait fritters.

These are super simple to make and don’t require alot of garnish as you will want the very slight taste of the white bait to come through.

 

Here is what they look like uncooked….

6 Eggs

1 cup of white bait
