Jay’s note


Many people may not realize, that anchovy is a fermented food. Anchovies are a family of a forage fish. The way to make preserved anchovies are to gut and salt them in brine. This results in a characteristic strong flavor. I recommend to use anchovies as instead of salt for cooking. Taste becomes flavorfully like a chef’s dish.
