Has anyone had fried smelt?

I tried it for the 1st time recently. It was really good. I was scared of it since I don't like fishy fish. But, I watched a few videos and my SO and I made it. It was really good. The experience of making it was awesome as well.

  • I usually like fish, but the name of this one turns me off.

  • Not in years! My cousins used to go up to the Sacramento River Delta back in the 70s and catch smelt by the bucketful, and bring them back for a big fish fry.
