Marinated Fresh Anchovies
  • Wash, clean and fillet the fish. If you can’t do it yourself ask your fishmonger to do it for you. Ask them to remove the central bone and head but keep the two pieces of fish connected by the tail.
  • In a bowl, spread a layer of coarse salt that is 1 cm deep. Spread a layer of fish and cover with another layer of salt. Repeat the same process – fish – salt – fish – ending with a layer of salt so that all of the fish are covered in the salt (you will need less or more salt depending on the container used).
  • Cover with a layer of plastic wrap and set them aside for 20-30 minutes.
  • When ready, carefully remove the fish from the salt and rinse with water. Transfer to paper towels to dry.
  • In a separate bowl combine the peppercorns, chili pepper, garlic, lemon zest, vinegar, olive oil and rosemary to make your marinade.
  • Add the fish to the marinade, cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 12 hours to marinate. (Do not refrigerate so that the olive oil doesn’t turn solid from the cold.)
  • When ready, carefully remove the fish from the marinade and transfer to a jar with the olive oil. (If you want to keep the marinade, pass it through a strainer and you can use it as an aromatic oil for tuna salad or any other dish with fish.)
  • You can keep the fish stored in the jar (with the olive oil) in the refrigerator for a few days.
