    Prepare smelt

    Somebody just gave me some smelt, what do I do with it? Do I clean it and cut the head off before cooking or after?? Do I cook it with head on and not cleaned and then clean it? Please help!

    Prepare smelt

    here is a basic simple recipe i have and used

    Fresh smelt have a characteristic cucumber-like aroma. This species' meat is white, delicate and sweet flavored. Bones are soft and edible, although many prefer to remove the bones from cooked smelt before eating. Preparation for cooking often involves simply removing the head and entrails. Frying is an easy method for preparing smelt. Mix one cup of flour and one teaspoon of turkey seasoning in a plastic bag. Shake cleaned smelt in this mixture so that they are lightly dusted. Fry the fish in 1/8 inch of vegetable or olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Fry for about 3 minutes on the first side and 2 minutes on the other. Drain the fish on paper towels and eat while still warm. Fried smelt are finger food, to be enjoyed plain or dipped in tartar or seafood sauces.
