Fried Sardines Recipe

Ingredients:

Two 3 3/4 ounce cans of sardines
1 egg
3/4 cup water
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oil

Instructions:

Drain the oil from two 3 3/4-ounce cans of sardines into a skillet. Then break an egg into a bowl and whip it until the yolk and white are well mixed. At that point add 3/4 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce to the egg and mix everything together. As you continue this mixing, blend in (a little at a time) 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour to form a smooth batter.

OK. Now dredge (very carefully, so they don't fall apart) your fish in some additional flour (so, later on, the batter will stick to them). Then put 1/2 cup of oil (I prefer light sesame) into the frying pan, add the rest of the oil from the sardine can, and heat all the shortening to a moderate temperature. When the oil is hot, dip the sardines in the batter and fry them until they're brown (about 3 minutes per side). If you wish, you can spoon extra batter over each fish before you turn it.
