A bag of deep fried minnows


Fried minnows

Thai’s love frying stuff and here’s another snack that emphasizes that.  Bplaa siuw tawt [ปลาซิวทอด], or deep-fried minnows, is pretty basic but tasty…if you like fried stuff.  Just pop them in your mouth, a handful at a time.

    I’ve been interested in trying some fried minnows. Ghost minnows look good to me. Do you do any prep or cleaning before frying? Are some minnows better than others. In my area we have Spot Tail, Shinners, Shad and Ghost Minnows.

    To be honest, I have no idea what kind they are. All I know is that they’re crunchy and taste quite fishy (in a good way)!
