Lovely fresh whitebait at Draeger's San Mateo

I had more than my share of tempura-fried shallot scapes last night, but when I saw the gleaming eyes and glistening scales on those lovely little whitebait, I knew that this was going to be the day I'd smell up the house with deep-frying yet again. At $3.99/lb I couldn't pass up such a rare treat! (Oh, I'm sure whitebait is available for less at the Asian fishmongers, but Draeger's does such a good job with cleaning the fish, and they're always so nice--well worth the dollar or so difference.)
