1 kg of large whitebait 
Vinegar to cover

Drain well the vinegar, put in a plastic container with a lid. Make a first layer in the base of the container starting with the whitebait,  add a pinch of salt (usually you have to, but you have to try), some minced garlic, chopped parsley and a splash of extra virgin olive oil. Make layers repeating the process while remaining whitebait. They must be completely covered with olive oil.
