Ingredients
  1. 3 large eggs
  2. 200 g Whitebait
  3. 1 pinch salt and black pepper to taste
  4. 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  5. 2 Tbsp Butter
  6. Lemons
Instructions
  1. Beat the eggs with a fork in a bowl until light and frothy. Stir the whitebait into the egg mix. Add a good pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Mix together well.
  2. In a large frying pan add the oil and butter to the pan on a medium heat. When the butter starts to bubble add the egg and whitebait mixture in even tablespoonfuls and cook for one-two minutes, then flip and cook the other side until lightly golden brown.
  3. When cooked transfer to a warmed spare plate. Continue cooking in batches of 5-6 fritters until the mixture is finished.
  4. Serve with fresh lemon wedges - and slices of fresh buttered white bread for the classic traditional kiwi serving.
