Best Whitebait Fritters Recipe

with Allan Burgess

Translucent freshly caught whitebait.

To make the best whitebait fritters: For each cup of fresh whitebait mix together one beaten egg, and one heaped teaspoon of flour, salt and pepper to taste. Nothing else. Cook in a moderately hot pan with a little butter to prevent sticking.

Tip: I’m sure the whitebait will taste even better if you can catch them yourself.

The secret to whitebaiting is to be on the river. Some days you catch a lot of bait; other days not much. You never know quite when the best runs will take place.

Whitebaiting at the mouth of Canterbury’s Waimakariri River. Your first task is to catch your whitebait.

Here is a video of Allan Burgess, the editor of Fishingmag.co.nz, drag netting for whitebait at the mouth of Canterbury’s Waimakariri River.
