    Default Anchovies - Love or Hate?

    I know some people think they are inedible but I LOVE 'em. If you are a fan try frying some with crushed garlic in a little olive oil so they turn into a paste and then toss through steamed broccoli. Or insert into little cuts on a leg of lamb before roasting. Or in a basic tomato pasta sauce.

    I tried them once on a pizza, and I'll eat almost anything but this is on my very short list of no-no's.

    To see them whole - absolutely not; but if I can't see them, such as is the case in caesar dressing, well then okay!

    Yuck. They ruin everything they touch like pizza with everything on it. Even if you pick them off the pizza, the damage has been done. They are just nasty! Man, do I hate anchovies.

    You can tone down the salt by soaking them in a little milk before using them. Or use anchovies preserved in oil, not salt.

    I like them. I especially like the richness they bring to sauces.

    Hhaa, I remember being asked if I wanted anchovies on a pizza, and my Mum said 'No way, you'll hate them', but I was thinking that they were olives, so I really had no idea what they were... Well, I hated them. Too salty for me.

    Delisch, even if the smell reminds me of unwashed lady parts.

    ^ Now that's just what was needed to make all the people who have never tried them want to just rush out and buy some!
