Canned Spanish AnchoviesOlasagasti, located in the Basque region of Spain, has been in business since 1929 and produce their products using traditional Spanish methods. Unlike the vinegar-marinated white “boquerone” style of anchovies, these anchovies are fried in olive oil “a la Donostiarra” with garlic and cayenne pepper.

Olasagasti anchovies are wonderful on a Caesar salad, on flat bread with tomatoes and olive oil, or served simply with bread, wine, and cheese as part of a tapas course. You can also use these for a lovely puttanesca pasta sauce.

One unique aspect of these anchovies is that the tins are not packed tightly to the brim with fish. This is a trademark of Olasagasti, who feel that using a larger tin gives the anchovies space to move and become covered in the marinade of olive oil, garlic, cayenne, wine vinegar and salt. The leftover oil is a flavorful bonus you can use for sauteing vegetables or shellfish.

Olasagasti Anchovies Fried in Olive Oil with Garlic and Cayenne Pepper are available at CyberCucina.
