In the world of small fish, it doesn't get better than fresh anchovies. They are delicious! Unfortunately, given that fresh anchovies can be difficult to find, many don't have a chance to enjoy them. Having told the story of our dinners in Katakolo, I wanted to share our family's recipe for fried anchovies. While the above picture was taken during our stay in Greece, where fresh anchovies are abundant, the process steps below were taken following our return to the states, where I have yet to get my hands on this wonderful fish. As a result, I used smelt to illustrate the process steps. While smelt worked well for demonstration purposes, they smell and taste quite different from anchovies and my husband and I didn't particularly care for them. If you have a favorite small fish and are looking for a quick and easy preparation, this recipe is your answer.
