Anchovies are a small seawater fish about 3 inches long and closely related to herrings and are high in proteins, Vitamins A, B and D and niacin and unsaturated fatty acid.

They provide a solid, flavoursome base to many Mediterranean dishes. Many recipes use anchovies for their powerful flavour hit where they are not recognisable either visually or by the taste buds. They are very often that secret ingredient that you just cannot put your finger on – the one that really makes the recipe sing!

How do I clean anchovies?

They can be washed with water or wiped with a dry cloth (to preserve their flavour).
Once washed, the anchovies should be dried with a dry cloth. Use scissors to remove the tail and the stomach to give the fillets their shape.

What’s the difference between salted anchovies and anchovy fillets?

Salted anchovies are semi-prepared products. They are sold whole in recipients where they are arranged in layers separated by salt. A certain amount of work is required before they can be eaten, as they have to be cleaned (e.g. with water) and filleted. This is why they are more popular with gourmets and experts in anchovies, as they preserve 100% of their real flavour.

Anchovy fillets are ready to eat. They have already been cured and are sold filleted, usually bathed in olive oil.
