Marinated Anchovies: Enjoy the Flavour of the Sea!

By 29/10/2013


Do you miss the summer sunshine and all that nice fresh foods you had on holiday?

Let me give you one of those classic, fresh Italian recipes you can never get bored with.

If you can get hold of fresh anchovies you can marinate them and enjoy them on a piece of toasted rustic bread. The flavour of the sea is guaranteed!

Marinated anchovies can last in the fridge for quite a while as the oil and vinegar are a natural preservative. If you are hosting a dinner party you can make these in advance and serve them as a starter. Your guests won't be disappointed!

Cooking in Italy

  • Prep Time : 25 + 5 hours to marinate minutes



Clean the anchovies by scaling them, removing the heads and the viscera. Rinse under running water

As this is a simple and cheap recipe, I am submitting it to Credit Crunch Munch which is hosted this month by Michelle of Utterly Scrummy Food For Families. This is a monthly challenge normally hosted by Fuss Free Flavours or Fab Food 4 All.
