About

Anchovies are a small sea-fish that is extremely abundant in the Mediterranean. Anchovies are rarely sold fresh.

Anchovy fillets are most commonly found layered with salt and oil in jars or cans and sometimes rolled around a caper.

They must be stored in the refrigerator once the jar or can is opened. In Asia, anchovies can be found salted and sun-dried.

Anchovy fillets are most commonly used in Italian cookery in sauces such as the tomato, garlic and caper based Spaghetti alla puttanesca and in southern Italy as a pizza topping.

Spaghetti alla puttanesca

They are also used in a very popular Swedish dish Jansson's Temptation which is a gratin of anchovy fillets and potatoes.

Storing leftover anchovies

Anchovy fillets freeze well. Roll up each fillet and freeze on a plate. Transfer frozen fillets to a zipper bag.

See: How To Store Leftover Anchovies for more recommendations and detail on the best way to store anchovies.
