Crispy Bacon Sprats









455g (1lb) sprats, fresh or defrosted
30g (1oz) butter or margarine
4 rashers back bacon, chopped
4 x 15ml spoon (4 tablespoons) fresh brown breadcrumbs
2 x 15ml spoon (2 tablespoons) fresh chopped parsley

Serves 4


Melt the butter in a large frying pan and fry the bacon until crispy.

Meanwhile, remove heads from sprats, if preferred, and clean large sprats.

Add to the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sprats are pale golden brown.

Sprinkle over breadcrumbs and parsley and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, until breadcrumbs are crispy.

Serve with a crisp green salad and brown bread and butter.
