Pulpetti tal-Makku – Whitebait Fritters


  • 4 oz of raw whitebait
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • parsley
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • Grated cheese


Beat the eggs well. Add salt, parsley, cheese and whitebait to the egg mixture and continue beating until everything is well mixed.

Drop big spoonfuls of the whitebait mixture into a hot sauce pan with some butter. You will know the when the butter is hot enough when it begins to sizzle and foam.

The whitebait should be cooked like pancakes, frying them once on each side.

Serve the fritters immediately while still hot with a squeeze of lemon juice over the fritters for extra flavor.

Difficulty: Easy
