Anchovies : Love it or hate it.
I know it's hard to have feelings for anchovies.
Most people consider it a salty, foul-smelling turn-off.
Others, however, find it a rich, pungent fish.
It's one of those either "black or white" foods without any gray area.
Do you have a favorite anchovy dish or would you rather change the subject?
Of course they've been an available topping on pizza forever, but didn't they used to appear on Caesar salads?
I just eat them on crackers or add diced anchovy to spaghetti sauce, scrambled eggs(anchovy and onion), any number of things-with other dishes like soups I simply use liberal doses of fish sauce.
We use anchovies all the time, but for flavours. We do not use them as a main dish or as an app. Thus, they are usually pulverized in a blender or crushed in a mortar and pestle. So we run through a six oz package every two months.
You're absolutely right, Wiley - I love seeing a nice Caesar salad with anchovies
Love making a pasta dish with an anchovy based sauce - heat up a pan, hit it with the anchovies and the oil it came in, then add shallots and garlic, salt & pepper, and then add the cooked dripping pasta, top with fresh parmesan. Yum!
