Some of you may have strong negative reactions to anchovies. If so, skip this post.
Otherwise read on!
While at the Korean Market they had a big tasting table set up and one of the items was stir fried anchovies. Heads and all! They were like fish jerky. A bit sweet and chewy, with garlic and sesame. I liked them!
I'm home today nursing a heavy chest cold but still feeling a bit peckish.
A fast brunch of pasta, the anchovies and garlic seemed like a fine idea!
Put the pasta on to boil.
Put some oil, the garlic and anchovies in a pan.
Add a few spoonfuls of the pasta water to help steam the dried fish. Drain the pasta and add to the pan.
A quick toss, a sprinkle of chives
Plate it up and dig in!
The fish is chewy, sweet and nutty. A perfect light meal!
I'm headed back to the couch to try and beat this cold.
Until next time,
Eat Well & Keep Digging!
