  • Product Information

    Silver, slender salty little fish, found mainly around the Black Sea and the Pacific and Atlantic, as well as the Mediterranean, where the best are thought to come from. They’re generally around 8-10cm long and, as their delicate flavour doesn’t last long after they’re caught, they are rarely exported fresh. Instead, they’re filleted, salt-cured and packed in oil or salt. Preserved that way, they take on an intense but sophisticated fish flavour and are a great store cupboard standby.

    For Kosher Anchovies please refer to our products in Olive Oil.

    serve-as-is.pngtick.jpgOur Anchovies are ready to Eat, there's no additional preparation necessary
    blend.pngtick.jpgBlitzed Anchovies make a great fish paste and can be added to Pates, Sauces and Spreads, one of chef's little secrets. 
    fry.pngtick.pngAnchovies can be added to a pan to significantly enliven other dishes but it is not necessary to cook them.
    microwave.pngtick.pngLittle point unless you are adding them to a Microwavable pizza or caserole.
    grill.pngtick.pngSame as above... Unless you are grilling them on Farmhouse doorstep bread, in which case - leave a little oil on while you grill it.. Brilliant starter or snack.
    simmer.pngcross.jpgNo real point to adding heat this way to these little lovelies.
    steam.pngcross.jpgMore likely to turn to mush than derive any real culinary advantage.
    storage.pngtick.pngAnchovies will store well in the container as long as they remain covered in oil.

    "Gentlemans" Relish

    Sidney Oland

    Probably not politically correct these days but.. 

    • 8 ounces (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
    • 8 ounces anchovies, drained
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • Dash of fresh grated nutmeg
    • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper, to taste


    1. Combine butter, anchovies, cinnamon, white pepper, cayenne pepper, and nutmeg in a food processor and pulse until well combined. Taste for seasoning and add additional salt and pepper if necessary. Alternatively, mash butter with a wooden spoon in a large bowl and then finely chop the anchovies. Add anchovies, cinnamon, white pepper, cayenne pepper, and nutmeg to the bowl, and mix to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper and mix again.

    2. Use right away as a spread on toast with sliced cucumber or watercress, or use as an additional ingredient to a cottage pie or scrambled eggs, or as a salty condiment for a baked potato, and even as a topping for a seared steak. Gentlemen’s relish will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or wrapped in plastic and frozen for up to three months.
