How to make fried latterini

First of all, rinse your latterini under running water directly in a colander. Since they are particularly small, the insides should not be cleaned or removed.

Then let them drain well, shaking them several times, so that they lose excess water.

Finally, add 4 – 5 tablespoons of flour to a large bowl, immerse your fish and move the bowl, making sure that all the fish are well breaded, intervene with your hands if you see that some are not perfectly breaded:

At this point, fill a wok or a high-sided saucepan with oil. It is important that there is at least 3 inches of oil so that the fried latterini has the necessary space to brown on all sides.

Immerse the latterini in a couple of shots, not all at the same time, only when the oil is boiling.

Don’t crowd them together, it’s important that each one finds its own space in the pot.

Finally let it fry for about 2 minutes, until golden brown. Lower the temperature if you see that they are coloring too much

They should be golden and crispy, but not dark!

Finally, drain with a slotted spoon directly on absorbent paper for a few seconds without crushing. then immediately transfer to a serving dish so that they do not get soggy.

Here are yours ready Fried lattes sprinkle with salt flakes
