Fried Finnish vendace or “muikku” in Finnish is a freshwater whitefish, the equivalent of Finland’s own ‘fish and chips’ as the dish features a local fish that is found in Finland, served with mashed potatoes.


  • 2 cups of plain flour
  • 1 cup of rye flour
  • 2 lbs small vendaces (dried and gutted)
  • White pepper
  • Salt
  • Butter
  • 1 tbsp of cooking oil or olive oil
  • Mayonnaise or yogurt sauce


  • Season the plain and rye flour with salt and pepper in a large bowl.
    Coat the vendace in the flour mixture.
    Fry the fish in a pan in the butter-oil mixture over medium heat until brown on both sides.
    It takes about 3-4 minutes to fry the fish on each side. Proceed to add some additional butter and oil when to cook more fish. The dish is best served with fried potatoes (or mashed potatoes) and a sauce.
