Some of you may have strong negative reactions to anchovies. If so, skip this post.

Otherwise read on!

While at the Korean Market they had a big tasting table set up and one of the items was stir fried anchovies. Heads and all! They were like fish jerky. A bit sweet and chewy, with garlic and sesame. I liked them!

I’m home today nursing a heavy chest cold but still feeling a bit peckish.

A fast brunch of pasta, the anchovies and garlic seemed like a fine idea!










Put the pasta on to boil.










Put some oil, the garlic and anchovies in a pan.










Add a few spoonfuls of the pasta water to help steam the dried fish. Drain the pasta and add to the pan.










A quick toss, a sprinkle of chives










Plate it up and dig in!










The fish is chewy, sweet and nutty. A perfect light meal!

I’m headed back to the couch to try and beat this cold.

Until next time Eat Well & Keep Digging!
