I am not sure why it took so long but last week we cooked whiting for the first time ever. We cooked it up   two ways to compare and both were a very pleasant surprise. With both recipes, we gutted, cut the head off and scaled the fish.

The first way was a simple coating of flour and fried in a frying pan with oil.

The second was in a tin foil enclosed pocket with fresh mushroom, julienned carrots, sauteed shallots and fresh lemon juice roasted at 380* for approx 25 mins.

Thanks to Tatiana from Nashua for these recipes! I would make both again even though there was some effort working around the bones… but it’s the same with smelt too. And the price makes it a serious protein bargain.
