Crispy Nightcrawler-Fritters with Mixed Salat

Sometimes, Your Revered Chef likes to revel in fond childhood memories, when Fresh Fat Nightcrawlersswallowing a live nightcrawler was considered to be a trial of courage. But alas, there is some culinary sense to that! Indeed, well-prepared nightcrawler fritters have a much more earthy, if not nutty taste when compared to your standard fried squid rings, which are more or less tasteless.

Get a fresh package of decently sized (read “fat”) Canadian nightcrawlers at your favorite local bait & tackle shop. Let the nightcrawler roam for two days in a box stuffed with some shredded newspapers for “self-cleaning” purposes.

Prepare a batter and use India Pale Ale instead of water. Liberally dunk the nightcrawlers in the batter and transfer immediately to a frying pan with hot sesame oil. Fry until golden-brown and crispy.Crisply Nightcrawlers

Serve with a mixed salad of your choice!

A white Bergerac goes nicely with this.

Always Enjoy!

    Cher Cef,

    encore une fois, c’est abominable! Pourquoi des vers de terre et pas des seiches? Et pourquoi le Bergerac .. un vin blanc Entre deux Mers est plus approprié.


  2. Dear Beauregard,

    as mentioned – it’s the nutty taste that makes all the difference!
    Regarding the wine selection, I stand corrected!

    Always Enjoy!
