Yummy Sand Dabs



I don’t think I’ve ever had sand dabs even though I’ve seen them many times on menus. They happened to become available at my weekly local online market and so I decided to give them a try. They were absolutely delicious, even though a bit intimidating since there was a spine to take care of. Luckily when it was cooked, the spine came out really easily.


2 lbs sand dabs

1 egg, beaten & seasoned

1 c. breadcrumbs


Lemon wedges


Dip the sand dabs in the egg and then coat them in breadcrumbs.

Heat the butter in a frying pan until it stops bubbling.

Add the sand dabs and brown them well on both sides.

Remove to a plate and carefully remove the spine (it should all come out in one piece).

Serve with some lemon wedges.
