Fried anchovies

Just squeeze some lemon juice over the hot anchovies and you are in culinary heaven. It doesn't really need anything else, however some capers and glass of cold beer goes pretty well with it. Some say, the smaller the fish the better, others swear that the bigger the better. Frankly, no need for a recipe for this one, but maybe there are some beginners out there who appriciate an advice or two.



Ingredients:
bunch of anchovies

semolina flour or corn grits
some herbs if desired
oil for deep frying

salt
pepper

lemon for serving

Some say just take the anchovies as they are, but if you ask me, I suggest to remove the head and the guts. Once done, rinse them carefully in cold water. After just coat them in semolina, or corn grits, but even in flour and deep fry in hot oil. Serve immediately with some freshly squeezed lemon juice and capers.
