I could quite easily make the case for sprats, or whitebait, on the grounds that it's THE fish to eat if you care about sustainability. They are one of the varieties of fish used to make salmon feed, and it takes three kilos of these unpopular minnows to produce one kilo of salmon. But I'm not going to do that. I want to serve sprats because they are very delicious. They don't take a lot of cooking and you can eat them whole, as the bones crunch down. They are a delicacy in parts of Andalucia and while I wouldn't advise a visit to Malaga, should you find yourself there you will find them to be wonderful. Alternatively, come to the Supper Club on 16th July and hopefully I'll convert you.
