SALTED ANCHOVIES BY CETARA 446ml - DELFINO BATTISTA

This little fish is a small, warm water relative of the herring. And just as the peoples of the north salted their herring to preserve them, the anchovy has long been salted by fishermen and packers in the Mediterranean, where it is a staple.

Salted anchovies are a bit more work, but worth it! but the backbone and tail only take a few seconds to remove. Then, soak the fish in cold water for about 15 minutes (or if you're in a hurry, just rinsed) to yield up their heavenly flavor. We actually find them less salty, once rinsed, than oil-packed anchovies. Once the can is opened, keep the remainder in an airtight container (glass is good) covered with all of the salt and brine.

What is most important about these little blue fish is that they are only taken during the proper season - otherwise they will have a mushy texture when they are preserved - and cleaned and salted as soon as possible after they are caught.

From one end of the peninsula to the other, Italians use these little, aromatic, preserved fish in almost any conceivable dish. While in the south, they seem to show up with practically the same frequency they use olive oil, they are also a common addition numerous sauces and salads.
