Side by Sides: Anchovies Prepared Like Sardines, EVOO Edition


Saying “anchovies” conjures up an image for most people of only one of several different and quite distinct foods. The brown salt-cured anchovy fillets Americans think of as “pizza anchovies” are merely one of many ways this fish is prepared. Another is just like sardines. This is sometimes referred to as “white anchovies”, with the pizza guys being the brown ones. To further complicate things, the word “boquerones” can be used to describe anchovies prepared like sardines, or it can also mean anchovy fillets marinated in white wine vinegar, garlic and herbs (always refrigerated). The good news is, they’re all delicious.

This pair is to show you the difference between a sardine and an anchovy prepared like a sardine. Same producer, same EVOO, different fish.
