Baby whitebait fritters with rosemary and anchovy dipping sauce


Baby whitebait is often available frozen, but sometimes you can find it fresh. These fritters are great with plenty of extra lemon juice squeezed over them.

You'll need

250 gm frozen baby whitebait, defrosted 50 gm cornflour 2 lemons, finely grated rind only For shallow-frying: olive oil   Rosemary and anchovy sauce 1 cup (firmly packed) flat-leaf parsley ½ cup (firmly packed) rosemary leaves 185 ml (¾ cup) extra-virgin olive oil 6 anchovy fillets 1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped 1 lemon, finely grated rind and juice only

Method

  • 01
  • For rosemary and anchovy sauce, process ingredients in a food processor until smooth, season to taste and set aside.
  • 02
  • Place whitebait in a bowl, sift over cornflour, add lemon rind, season to taste, toss to combine and coat. Heat 1cm oil in a deep-sided frying pan over medium-high heat and cook packed tablespoons of whitebait mixture in batches, turning once, until crisp and golden (2-3 minutes each side). Drain on absorbent paper, serve hot with rosemary and anchovy sauce.
