I don’t usually put recipes on here, but after our fishing trip in the company of two firefighters from Christchurch, I hadto post their recipe ‘cos it was sooo good. We thought the best way to eat kahawai was to smoke it, but this recipe is even better. Probably the closest you’ll get to whitebait fritters without actually catching them. Method: Catch fish, skin and bone it. Cut slivers of kahawai, beat a few eggs, add salt and pepper, add fish and fry. That’s it, delicious!
