Ingredients
  

  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsps water
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 lb whiting fillets
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil for deep flying
  • #For the sauce #
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp fish stock
  • Few leaves fresh mint, finely chopped

Instructions
 

  • #The delicate flavor of mint in this recipe adds a refreshing taste.# Make the batter by mixing together the sifted flour and the baking powder.
  • Mix in the water, followed by the egg.
  • Add the oil and a good pinch of salt and beat all the ingredients together well. Set the batter aside to rest for a few minutes.
  • Season the whiting fillets with salt and pepper and cut them into small strips.
  • Heat the oil for deep-frying. Dip the whiting strips into the batter and fry them in the hot oil until crisp and golden.
  • Remove the fritters and drain them on paper towels. Keep hot.
  • Meanwhile, mix together the sauce ingredients and serve with the hot whiting fritters. #TIME# Preparation takes about 15 minutes and cooking takes approximately 20 minutes, as you will need to fly the fritters in several batches. #VARIATION# If you do not have the sauce ingredients, the fritters are delicious with a little lemon juice. #COOK’S TIP# Make the sauce a few hours in advance. This gives the flavor of the mint time to develop.
