Fresh sprats

Sprattus sprattus

Buy fresh sprats online from a real UK fishmonger

Sprats are small oily fish that are found in all the seas around Europe. They are from the same family as anchovies and herrings. They are oily fish, rich in Omega 3 and the bones are a good source of calcium.

The season starts in late summer to early autumn and goes on to about February.

It is traditional to eat them whole, without gutting. If you have the patience you can gut them, but it will need some time! Flour them and deep fry. Cook them well, then you can eat everything, bones and all, serve with brown bread and butter.

If you like seafood, you’ll like sprats! If you don’t live near a fishmonger, buy fish online, your delivery is always something to look forward to, especially if your parcel is coming from The Smelly Alley Fish Company, Berkshire’s premier fishmonger.
