Cooked whitebait tonight and fakked it up. It's now in the outside bin (it stinks). Instead of being crispy, it was soggy. Think I fried too much of it at one go.
This is the recipe I used:whitebait recipe
Oh, should mention: did not pre-soak in milk but read quite a few recipes and they did not require that, and did not deep fry.
This is dictionary.com's definition of whitebait but don't agree - eat sprats and whitebait are thinner and smaller.
