2 LBS OF FRESH ANCHOVIES.
2 CUPS OF EITHER WHITE OR RED WINE VINEGAR ENOUGH TO COVER THE ANCHOVIES.
1-2 CUP EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL OR JUST ENOUGH TO COVER THE ANCHOVIES.
4 CLOVES OF GARLIC FINELY MINCED.
CRUSHED DRIED OREGANO TO TASTE.
RED CHILI FLAKES TO TASTE.
CRUSHED SEA SALT TO TASTE.
CRUSHED BLACK PEPPER TO TASTE.
FINELY CHOPPED MINT OR ITALIAN FLAT PARSLEY.
SOME LEMON WEDGES WHICH ARE OPTIONAL AS A LITTLE SPRITZ BEFORE SERVING.
SOME FINELY SLIVERED ONION TO USE DURING MARINATING OR SLIVERED ON TOP BEFORE SERVING.
(THIS USE OF ONION LEANS A LITTLE CLOSER TOWARD THE SPANISH VERSION OF THIS DISH CALLED “BOQUERONES”)
OPTIONAL: CAPERS ON THE PLATE BEFORE SERVING.

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. CLEAN THE ANCHOVIES BY PULLING THE HEAD DOWNWARD TOWARD THE BELLY OF THE FISH FROM THE GILL FLANGE THIS WILL REMOVE THE HEAD AND THE GUTS.

2. THEN WITH YOUR FINGER YOU CAN SPLIT THE ANCHOVY THE REST OF THE WAY DOWN AND RINSE THEM WELL.

3. THEN YOU REMOVE THE SPINE FROM THE TAIL SECTION OF THE ANCHOVY USING YOUR INDEX FINGER AND THUMB AND PULL THE SPINE DOWNWARD TOWARD THE HEAD TO REMOVE THE SPINE COMPLETELY.

4. NOW LAY THE ANCHOVIES OUT IN A GLASS BAKING DISH AND ADD ENOUGH RED/WHITE VINEGAR TO COVER THEM.

5. DEPENDING ON HOW BIG THE BAKING/CASSEROLE DISH IS YOU MAY HAVE ONE OR MORE LAYERS OF ANCHOVY TO COVER WITH YOUR VINEGAR.

6. PUT A COVER OR USE PLASTIC WRAP TO COVER THE ANCHOVIES AND PUT IN REFRIGERATOR FOR A MINIMUM OF 5 HOURS AT ROOM TEMPERATURE TO COOK IN THE ACID OF THE VINEGAR. IF YOU WANT TO BE ABSOLUTELY SURE THEN MARINATE 12-24 HOURS IN THE FRIDGE.

7. WHEN READY TAKE THE ANCHOVIES OUT OF THE FRIDGE IF YOU PUT THEM THERE AND DRAIN THE VINEGAR FROM THE BAKING DISH. LAY THE FISH ON A CUTTING BOARD AND DRY THEM WITH PAPER TOWELS OR CLEAN DISH TOWEL.

8. PLATE THE ANCHOVIES IN A DECORATIVE FASHION ON THE PLATE.

9. NOW TAKE A LITTLE OF YOUR MINCED GARLIC AND RUB A TINY BIT ON EACH ANCHOVY.

10. NOW SPRINKLE THE ANCHOVIES WITH SOME SEA SALT, BLACK PEPPER, RED CHILI FLAKES AND CRUSHED OREGANO AND AN OPTIONAL LEMON SHPRITZ..

11. NOW DRIZZLE SOME EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL OVER THE ANCHOVIES AND SERVE.

OPTIONAL: ADD SOME CAPERS TO THE PLATE BEFORE DRIZZLING OLIVE OIL ON TOP.

OPTIONAL: ADD SOME SLIVERED ONIONS TO PLATE BEFORE DRIZZLING WITH OLIVE OIL.(THIS IS MORE THE WAY THE SPANISH MAKE MARINATED ANCHOVIES CALLED “BOQUERONES.”

NOTE: MAKE SURE THERE IS ENOUGH OLIVE OIL ON THE PLATE OF ANCHOVIES SO THAT YOUR GUESS CAN SPOON SOME OF THE OIL ONTO THEIR PLATES WITH THE ANCHOVIES AND GIVE THEM SOME BREAD TO MOP THE PLATE UP WITH. YUM!
