Recca Anchovies - Salt-Packed

1000 gr net/600 gr drained

These salted, whole anchovies have been praised by everyone from Alice Waters to Julia Child. Huge and delicious, Recca anchovies are a pantry must for the true anchovy afficionado. 

Serving Suggestions

Salt-packed anchovies add great flavor and depth to classic Caesar Salad dressing, Pasta Puttanesca, and many other Mediterranean dishes. Or you can just eat them whole, with salad, toast, or pasta to enjoy their wonderful aroma, firm texture, and excellent flavor.

How to store your anchovies

Although salt-packed anchovies are delicious, the can is not small, and rarely would a home cook use a whole can in one dish or consume a whole can in one sitting. The best way to store your un-eaten salt-packed anchovies is to place them in a glass container and place the glass container in the back of your fridge. The salt will prevent them from going bad, so they should last for at least 6 months. Thanks for asking, "Fishy-in-Burbank".

We knew the anchovies were going to be above average - and they were. What matters is that the price was fair, and delivery was exactly as promised.
