Ingredients

  • 1 Pound anchovies in salt
  • Coarse sea salt, to cover
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 3/4 Cups white-wine vinegar
  • 1 red onion, chopped finely
  • 1 fat clove garlic, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 chile, sliced thinly
  • 1/3 Cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • Toasted bread, for serving

Directions

Remove the spines from the anchovies with your fingers, gently easing them out.

Rinse the anchovies in cold water. Place them in a single layer in a dish and add the juice of 1 lemon and vinegar. Marinate for 30 minutes.

Rinse them again and squeeze gently between sheets of paper towels or in a clean kitchen towel. Lay them on a serving dish and dress with the onion, garlic, chile, the remaining lemon juice, oil, and parsley. Leave them to marinate for 3 hours or up to overnight. If the oil sets in the refrigerator, wait for them to reach room temperature before eating. Serve with toasted bread.

Salt Shopping Tip

Salt enhances food by adding depth and accentuating existing flavors. Be sure to have a couple types in your cupboards. Regular iodized salt for the table is typical; sea salt is also a great investment.

Salt Cooking Tip

Bland food is never good. Be sure to season every layer of your food while cooking.
