Binnur's Turkish Cookbook - Delicious, healthy and easy-to-make Ottoman & Turkish recipes

Sunday, March 18, 2007


(Gumus Baligi)

1 pkg (454 gr) frozen Smelt, defrosted
1/3 cup flour

1/2 cup sunflower oil

Gut the Smelt, wash them with cold water and drain. Sprinkle some salt all over. Pour the sunflower oil into a large skillet and heat it up over medium heat. Place the flour on a large plate, hold each Smelt at its tail and dip in the flour. Fry as much as will fit in the skillet for 4-5 minutes. Turn over halfway through. You probably won't need to turn over the very small ones:) When done, place the fried Smelt on a plate with paper towel on it to soak up the extra oil. Serve with lemon wedges.

Meal Ideas:
- Arugula Salad, Fava, Bread with Black Olives and Turkish Coffee.
