Deep Fried Crispy Sprats
Author
Customer recipe by Corinne Cirkovic

I got my fresh sprats from Tesco from the fish counter. They are really value for money as they only cost £3.00 per kg at Tesco and are bursting with high concentrations of Omega 3 fatty acids. My father-in-law used to make this dish and my husband has fond childhood memories of eating it. I made it for my son today and he loved the sprats with ketchup! #TriedForLess http://u.tescoorchard.com/8vm06

Wash and gut the sprats. You don‘t need to debone the sprats as they get crunchy and edible when fried.

Heat vegetable/sunflower or corn oil till really hot.

While oil is being heated, mix about 10 tbsp of plain flour and corn flour on a plate. Add salt and pepper to taste.Toss the sprats in the flour and coat lightly with the flour.

Put the sprats in the hot oil. They should bubble and fry immediately. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes and drain on kitchen paper. You can serve with any kind of dip you wish. I served mine with mango and chilli sauce.
