Description

My Newfie grandmother's smelt recipe. They're like little fishy french fries!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • ¾ pound cleaned smelt
  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying, or as needed
Directions
  1. 1. Whisk together flour and salt in a pie plate. Dredge smelt in flour mixture, coating both the outside and cavity of the fish.
  2. 2. Heat oil in a frying pan 1/4-inch deep over medium heat until hot. Place fish in the hot oil; fry until crisp and firm, 2 to 3 minutes each side. Remove fish with a slotted spoon; drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
