Fried Smelt

Preparation

1
Rinse and pat dry smelt with paper towels. Season the flour with dried spices, salt and pepper. Coat each fish in the seasoned flour. Dip each fish into the beaten egg and then roll into panko bread crumbs.
2
Set aside.
3
Heat peanut oil in a medium saute pan with high sides over medium-high heat. Test to see if oil is hot with a pinch of panko. If the panko sizzles, the oil is ready. Add the battered smelt to the oil and cook for approximately 2-3 minutes, flip and cook another 2 minutes.
4
Remove from pan and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with sea salt.

I think the quantity of fish in your recipe must be wrong.

About

Use any other spices instead of thyme and oregano if you'd like. Serve with tarter or lemon. Great over a bed of greens or just eaten plain.
