As a fish lover I jumped on these when I saw them in store. I deep fry them for 3 mins and serve with some Tatar sauce or ketchup and chilli sauce for a healthy snack. They stay crispy and the bones are easily removed but the bones stay soft. The value and quality is outstanding. These will be at the top of my shopping list in future.

Wild fish, retro 79s classic, feeds two. Flavourful. Just only turn once so they don't break up.

First time - and even with my son totally sabotaging them, they were still delicious. As a result of him a) trying to shallow fry the whole pack at once instead of the recommended quarter pack; b) covering the frying pan with a lid so that moisture trying to escape just dripped back onto the whitebait; and c) shaking the pan vigorously instead of turning the fish over carefully, the resulting whitebait had lost most of their coating and were too soft. Even so, they tasted wonderful - and unlike some whitebait, the fish content was generous and juicy. We ordered a couple of packs and now I can't wait to try them when cooked properly!!

These are absolutely amazing! I've always loved whitebait and my daughter wanted to try them, so I bought them not expecting too much, but they were DELICIOUS. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and vinegar or lemon juice and away you go. Serve with a nice crispy salad for a light summery meal. I shallow fried mine in rapeseed oil, but might experiment with the air-fryer next time as I still have some left

I love whitebait. Have had from another supplier before and really was not expecting much. After a quick shallow fry all I can say is wow. Be warned like all fried fish open the windows.


Fabulous! Grill, oven, fry, whatever.........they are the business!!

This is my first taste of Whitebait and I'm very pleased. A quick shallow fry and served warm with a pile of buttery wholemeal bread doorsteps. Magical...

Like several other reviewers, I have been looking for whitebait for ages. This product is excellent and I have worked my way through about five packs so far. My cooking suggestion is to do them in a deep fat frying pan. Be very careful over temperature and timing. Get yourself a thermometer (I actually use a sugar thermometer, which reads up to 200C, e.g. from Wilkinsons, right opposite Iceland here in Kettering) and get the oil up to 175C. Cook straight fromthe freezer for three minutes then take them out, onto a tray and into an oven at 100C. Let the oil come back to 175C (2-3 minutes on my cooker) then give them another 90 secs. Knock off the remaining oil, serve in a bowl (also pre-heated in the 100C oven), with a serviette underneath to catch the last few drops of oil. With the slightest bit of fine-tuning to suit your particular cooking circumstances, what you end up with will be fully restaurant standard.

These are a quick and easy meal, great value for money and best of all they taste great
