Greek fried smelt with tartar sauce


  • Add all of the ingredients for the coating in a resealable bag (fit for food). Shake to combine.
  • Add the fish in batches. Seal bag and shake to coat.
  • Remove fish from bag and put in a strainer. Tap the fish to remove the extra coating. In this, the oil is kept cleaner as the fish are frying.
  • Fill a deep 26 cm pan with oil until it reaches 2-3 inches in depth. Place over high heat, until the temperature of the oil reaches 180* C (350* F).
  • When the oil is hot enough, add the fish in batches so that the temperature of the oil doesn’t drop. Fry the smelt for a very short amount of time. 1-2 minutes, depending on what size they are.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  • Serve crunchy fried smelt with creamy tartar sauce and lemon slices.


While frying you need to watch the temperature of the oil and the fish very closely, because they are usually very small and can burn very quickly!
