Hello, I used to be a regular here, but disappeared. Well, I'm back and more excited than ever to eat healthily in a way that will enable to me to have optimal cognitive function and physical energy:) I am trying to eat on a budget and was thrilled to find smelt on sale for 2.99/lb. Wow. I plan on using this as a primary source of protein, with eggs and organ meat occasionally. I'll have some greens with my meals, coffee and cream (I'm primal) in the mornings, along with yogurt/kefir, avocado, berries with some sort of carb for lunch. Dinner will be my biggest meal.

I enjoy smelt but would like to be able to eat the bones as well. I've been pan-frying it with coconut oil or butter, but the bones don't seem to "soften" the way I'd like. What are some ways you've cooked smelt (and with what ingredients) to make it paleo friendly? Bonus points for tips on how to eat the bones in a more...pleasurable way.

I just fry it with bones and remove them when i eat the fish, sometimes i eat the bones for minerals also. I always eat the roe and milt too. Smelt is one of my favorites. Heres a nice little video about smelt:
