  • 2 lbs fresh anchovies or whitebait
  • 4 oz plain flour
  • 6 tbsps cold water
  • Pinch salt
  • Oil for frying

garlic sauce

  • 4 slices bread crusts trimmed, soaked in water for 10 minutes
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsps lemon juice
  • 5 tbsps olive oil
  • 2 tbsps water optional
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tsps chopped fresh parsley
  • Lemon wedges for garnishing optional


  • Sift the flour into a deep bowl with a pinch of salt. Gradually stir in the water in the amount needed to make a very thick batter.
  • Heat enough oil for frying in a large, deep pan. A deep-sided saute pan is ideal.
  • Take 3 fish at a time and dip them into the batter together. Press their tails together firmly to make a fan shape.
  • Lower them carefully into the oil. Fry in several batches until crisp and golden. Continue in the same way with all the remaining fish.
  • The fish should be eaten immediately after frying. If it is necessary to keep the fish warm, place them on a wire cooling rack covered with paper towels in a slow oven with the door open. Sprinkling fried food lightly with salt helps to absorb excess fat.
