Another one of my favourites. It’s really easy, but it takes a while to prepare. You must use the freshest anchovies as they are only ‘cooked’ in lemon juice. If you can’t get fresh anchovies where you are, you can use small sardines instead. Great with salad as an antipasto.
- Fresh anchovies
- olive oil
Clean, wash and fillet the anchovies and dry with kitchen paper.
Layer the fillets in a non-metallic dish, season with salt and squeeze
over plenty of lemon juice.
Leave in the fridge for at least 4 hours. They are ready when they are white all the way through.
When you are ready to serve, remove the fillets from the lemon juice, dress with a little oil and sprinkle the parsley on top.
