Encyclopedia of Food and Cookery

A fritto misto, or ‘mixed fry’, is an Italian dish of small pieces of tender meats, vegetables or seafood encased in a light, fluffy batter which are quickly deep-fried. Fritto misto, like all fried food in batter, must be eaten as soon as it is cooked to be at the peak of perfection. Choose the freshest possible ingredients: small slices of zucchini (courgette), eggplant (aubergine), artichoke hearts, mushrooms or tiny cauliflower florets, or very thin slices of veal escalope or lamb’s brains. Dip them in batter (see Fritters) and deep-fry for 2–3 minutes until golden.

Fritto misto di mare, the famous Italian fishermen’s fish fry, can include small whole fish or strips of fillet, calamari, prawns or scallops – whatever combination of seafood is best and freshest on the day.
