Can you use the anchovy oil left in the jar and
if so any suggestions?
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 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.
