Anchovy is the bacon of the sea, says Nigella Lawson.

Nigella Lawson is the gangbang whore of cooking

Her show is all about licorice on Monday evening BBC2 8pm.

She's been mixing it up this season. This week's show started with twice buttered toast with a sprinkle of sea salt!

Wouldn’t it be something flat like haddock?

Anchovy pizza is the best!

I think she means flavour wise.

I'd say smoked kippers were more the bacon of the sea.

I just bought anchovy paste. I will use it in sauces. Perhaps I should post in the "I want to be underwhelmed" thread.

no. most people love bacon. anchovy is an acquired taste for many. I would say shrimp are the bacon of the sea.

Do bacon and anchovies commingle in Puttanesca?

by Anonymousreply 911/21/2020

R5 for the win. Smoked kippers are so much better than anchovies.

Is the anchovy an actual fish or a preparation of small fish?

by Anonymousreply 1111/21/2020

No it is an actual fish, but there are many different sub species.

R12 r13 thanks! Is it eaten fresh?

by Anonymousreply 1511/21/2020

Not really. Bacon flavor is good on its own and if you taste it in the food. Anchovies add a unique flavor if you can’t quite taste them.

Other than he great rack, I love Nigella because she's not afraid of prunes and lima beans and anchovies and other ingredients that make viewers with baby tastes (ie, Americans) recoil.

I love anchovy, but to filet and debone them is hard on the fingers. I may give the paste a try.

I LURVE anchovies

by Anonymousreply 2211/21/2020

Anchovies are great but only if you really pound them to bring out all the flavour.

by Anonymousreply 2311/21/2020

How do you use anchovies?

by Anonymousreply 2411/21/2020

R23 You have to have sex with them to flavor them up? I’m sure when Elio’s done with the peach he’ll give it a try.

r15 Fresh anchovies are difficult to find. Popular in Mediterranean recipes.

Chef John says "Anchovies are the MSG of the sea."

Sorry, I missed your post, R8.

by Anonymousreply 3511/21/2020

Thanks r5 @bronzeagegay! Adding an anchovy certainly perks up stews and gravies, so indeed the MSG of the sea!

I also keep a bottle of thai fish sauce. Sprinkling a few drops into virtually any dish at the tail end of its cooking enhances its flavor.

Fresh anchovies must be like the wonderful fresh sardine. I will keep an eye out for it.
