They may be small, but these common, saltwater forage fish pack a serious punch of umami flavour.

They also happen to be one of the most sustainable fish available. 

Our salted anchovies have been gutted, salted in brine and left to mature; a traditional curing process that turns their originally brown flesh white and gives them their famously strong, fishy flavour.

How to Cook

These intensely flavoured little morsels can be enjoyed straight from the can and on some crusty bread with no cooking required.

They’ve even been known to grace the tops of many a pizza. We’ll let you decide for yourself if that’s a genius idea or plain sacrilege.

But as well as being a divisive pizza topping, they’re also a key component of classic dishes such as Caesar Salad or Spaghetti alla Puttanesca.  

Even those who don't like anchovies may be surprised by how delicious they can be in a marinade. Try finely chopping your anchovies, adding chopped herbs such as rosemary and parsley, combining with lemon juice and olive oil, and slathering your concoction over a leg of lamb before roasting.

Far from making your lamb taste of the sea, the anchovy marinade will simply deliver a big hit of savouriness that will have even the naysayers going back for more.

What to Drink

Anchovies are popular along the Mediterranean coast where a dry rosé is often chosen as the ideal accompaniment. 

If you’re in the mood for something a little different, you might also find that a Manzanilla or Fino Sherry is an excellent match for the humble anchovy.
