Whitebait Fritters


When my parents were visiting recently we decided to try some Whitebait fritters in Hokitika. There is a takeaway shop there that sometimes sells them when the fish are in season. The lady on the left took our order and my father on the right enjoyed his even though they were expensive.

Mine was perfect and much appreciated especially with a little squeeze of lemon and a sprinkling of salt. These are a New Zealand delicacy and a true Kiwi tradition. B doesn't like these as he doesn't like looking at the little eyes but I just tell him not to look.

Linking up with Skywatch Friday and Tom's signs.

Love whitebaits as cooked in soups. Dad cooked that for me when I was young
Yum! Whitebait fritters are so delicious when cooked properly. Seeing your father enjoy them made me want one! Or two, or three ... LOL
