Anchovies

December 03, 2012

From Fine Dining Lovers, Anchovies from A to Z: 26 Things About Anchovies, an alphabetized collection of facts and figures in regards to the salt-water forage fish, including:

Oily fish
The anchovy, together with its colleague the sardine and other varieties like mackerel belong to the group of oily fish that are rich in vitamins A and D, as well as Omega 3 fatty acids.

Queen olives
The famous Spanish olives, often stoned and filled with chilli pepper, are wrapped with an anchovy in oil to make a tasty accompaniment to an aperitif.

Umami
Anchovies are naturally one of the foodstuffs most richly endowed with the so-called fifth taste, umami, which enhances the flavour of the other ingredients in certain recipes.
