- 250g whitebait
- 3 Eggs - 2 yolks and 3 whites
- 1 serving butter to fry
- 1 serving oil, to fry
- 2 slices fresh bread, whichever your favourite is
- 1 squeeze lemon juice, to serve
Mix whitebait and egg yolks in a bowl with a little salt and pepper.
Whisk the whites in a separate bowl until almost firm, but not dry, and gently fold them into the yolk/whitebait mixture (key - don't stir the whites in too vigorously, gently does it when mixing the two together or you'll lose all the air from the egg white).
Heat up a fry pan, add some butter and olive oil (just enough to stop the butter from burning) and dollop spoonfuls of the whitebait mixture into the hot butter.
Fry until golden on both sides and jam the fritter into some freshly buttered bread, or just eat by themselves - with a dash of lemon juice.
