Catalan style anchovies

This recipe is perfect for those hot summer days where you need something light and fresh to indulge in.

Liberally sprinkle fresh anchovy fillets with salt.
Leave to process for 2-12 hours.
Rinse the anchovies to get rid of salt and pat them dry.
Generously cover with olive oil, white wine vinegar, chopped garlic, Mediterranean herbs, lemon juice and freshly ground black pepper.
Leave to marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.

Serve with freshly cooked bread to mop up juices, and a glass of chilled white wine or rosé.

Make sure the anchovies are very fresh, to avoid food poisoning.
It is easier to fillet the anchovies if you put them in the freezer for half an hour before filleting.

Thank you to S for the delicious recipe.
