There’s a long list of how to prepare fish to eat. But one of the oldest and most popular is whole-fried bream. Many people grew up eating them this way. They taste fantastic, from biting off the crispy tail to pulling the juicy meat off the backbone. You do have to be careful of the bones, but you’ll get the knack of it.

Here’s how to do it. Clean the bream by scaling them with a spoon, cutting off the head and removing the insides. Wash them thoroughly. Add salt and pepper or your favorite seasoning to both sides. Put in a plastic storage bag with your favorite fish fry. Shake, remove the excess fish fry and carefully put in a pot of cooking oil deep enough to cover the fish completely. Fry at 375 degrees until they turn golden brown. It should only take 4-5 minutes. Simple, but delicious.
