If you like whitebait, then here is an easy recipe for a simple kiwi delicacy. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I serve them with avocado, but you don't have to.

  1. Preheat oven to 120 degrees C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Whisk eggs and flour in a bowl. Add whitebait, stirring until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
