This is a dish I remember from my childhood, and it comes to mind every time I see fresh smelts available at the grocery. Serve with mashed potatoes for a traditional Swedish meal, or french fries for a more modern meal. This dish can also be made with small herring or sardines. Posted for ZWT6.
- Clean fish, and remove the heads.
- Rinse fish well, and drain.
- Salt the fish, lightly coat in the breadcrumbs, then fry in the butter until golden brown on both sides.
- Serve immediately.
This was really not bad! I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I enjoyed the crispiness of the breadcrumbs, and thought it added texture.
When I saw this recipe, I just had to tag it. I had this all the time when I was a child. I made this at camp this weekend and absolutely loved it!!! Thanks for sharing your recipe.
