Recipe of fried capelin
To roast capelin, you need about 0.5 kg of capelin, 1 onion, oil for frying, a little flour for breading and the juice of ½ lemon or lime, salt and a pinch of spices for fish to your taste.

Put the pieces in a deep container, add salt, sprinkle with juice of lemon or lime, add the spices for the fish (you can also add a little sugar for taste). Mix gently and leave for 20-30 minutes to marinate. Capelin is good because it can not be cleaned before cooking. Some cooks cut off heads and tails, and some guts, but this is not necessary.

While the onion is fried, marinate the bread pieces in flour. Fry the fish portions, from both sides, until Golden brown. Can place the fish close to each other, it will not stick together. Ready serving, remove with a dry slotted spoon, laying on a paper towel to soak up excess fat, and immediately place into the pan (cauldron) a new batch of capelin. And so until then, until all fish is cooked.
You can also use for breading chicken egg, not preparing the marinade. To do this, break it, add pepper and salt to taste. Pour the egg mixture in the bowl where is moiwa. Mix. Roll the fish in flour and fry on both sides.
