A Japanese friend introduced me to shallow frying fish skeletons.

This is a very worthwhile thing to do.

Fillet your fish, remove the head, and fry the bones and remaining fish left between the ribs in 3mm of oil or so. No doubt an excellent way for lactose intolerant people(s) to get calcium. The bones go all crunchy and the remaining fish meat gets a decent dose of yummy brownness (I forget the word for yummy browness)

Season with salt and white pepper.

If the bones are from a big fish, it might be worth frying, resting, and then frying again to make sure they are thoroughly crunchified.

My fish were small Australian Herring (Tommy Rough) so only around 18cm long or so.

Tail and fins are all food as well as long as you fry until crunchy.

I recommend drinking beer with them. If you're using Tommy Rough, and want beer snacks for 2, you'd want at least 10 or so to make it worthwhile. I probably ate 10 on my own, but I'm greedy.

One additional advantage of doing this is you can be less fussy about making sure you get all the flesh off a small fish when you are filleting it. In the end, nothing is wasted.

Yum.

127 million lactose intolerant Japanese people who need their bones to keep working :)


It really is delicious tho.


Definitely worth a try.

I'd be really surprised if anyone who enjoys fish didnt enjoy it. As long as it's cooked well enough for all the bones to be completely crunchy, you'll love it.

I'll give you triple your money back (for the total price of a herring skeleton taken from a dumpster behind an an Adelaide fish market) if you try it and dont like it!

Who could say no to that?!? :D

"Maillard reaction" is the word I was looking for to describe browning foods to deliciousness.

Has anyone tried this yet?

This isnt just some wacky thing to do once.

If you try this, you will probably do it to every fish skeleton you ever own.

Can someone slse try it and report back, just so I dont feel like such a freak :)

Awesome!


It really is worth going out and buying some small fish to do this with even if your system cant provide any at the moment.

Delicious!

こんにちは!それはおいしいです!

Id give it a go, Bull. When traveling in my younger years I was always the one eating from the roadside stalls or back alley's. Its amazing the treats you could find, sometimes unappealing to look at but delicious to eat.

I'm not convinced that this topic has had enough trials.

I will send you a $10 note in the post* if you do this and are disappointed enough to demand $10.

Seriously it is the best thing ever.

I've never been wrong about anything before :)




*Offer limited to the first 10 #$%! **





**Actually, I won't give you a thing.
