    I always do--

    I use it in whatever preparation I'm using the anchovies--if it's a salad, it's part of the dressing, a sauce, it goes in there, too!

      I like it with the anchovies on good bread, as a snack.

        On pasta - it's a delight.

          ick! NO!
          I hated jarred anchovies until I heard to soak and wash and blot the oil off of them.
          According to Batali, it's usually substandard oil used in the packing.

          But if *you* like it, go for it . . .

            great stuffed mushroom recipe

            calls for mincing mushroom stems and frying in OO with garlic, shallots, anchovy filets and a few teaspoons of anchovy oil. let cool and add lots of chopped parsley, grated parm cheese, and egg, fresh bread crumbs, pepper.

            add mixture to mushroom caps, squeeze some lemon on mushrooms and drizzle some more OO and bake on high heat til cooked.

              That sounds really good, but I'm curious about the egg. Is it beaten? Does it go with the bread crumbs? With the parm cheese and parsley? I can't quite figure out what to do with it.
