I buy the ones in vinegar. Pretty expensive. The only two places around here that sell them charge $50/lb. But they make a nice snack when you are feeling a little peckish.

That's a lot given that it's extremely easy to make and boquerones cost basically nothing. The most complicated part of it is gutting/cleaning the boquerones.


Buy 500g frozen boquerones. Defrost them. Gut (etc.) them so you get two filets out of each. Marinate for two hours in 300 ml Sherry vinegar, 100 ml water, quite a bit of pepper and 2-3 bay leafs. Discard marinade, if it's very sour rinse it a little. Mince a lot of garlic (almost a whole head). Sweat lightly together with some minced shallots/onion in a bit of olive oil. Roughly chop parsley.

Place the filets in a container, do not stack them. Lightly salt and pepper them. Spread out the (cooled down) garlic/onion/parsley over the filets. Fill up with olive oil so all filets are covered. Let marinate in the fridge.

Which probably justifies at least some of their expense. I've never thought of making them. I never see fresh anchovies for sale, and when I've asked to order them, I could only buy them in an 11 pound box, which is more anchovies than I need.

See my edit, you can, and probably should, use frozen ones. A kg of them costs about 4-5 €.

I'll ask about frozen. Thanks for the recipe.

Finally ordered some non-stick pans a few weeks ago (a cheap and light 28/24/20 set made of aluminium). Seems to do the trick (heats quickly, solid build). Finally I can enjoy some omelettes. I also want to make some fish soon but never seem to find the time to go to the fishmonger. Maybe tomorrow.

In other news: mulled wine while listening to Paganini and practicing handwriting/writing down Math definitions is making me happy. Later on: mulled wine while listening to Sinatra's Christmas album.
