There are tons of large anchovies in half moon bay right now. I love oily fish such as mackerels, sardines, and herrings, so i figured i want to try anchovies. Anyone got a recipe for fresh anchovies?

 :smt010 I thought I was gonna learn a great way to prepare them! Since I've only managed to catch short Halibut, I was gonna target some 'choves for eating with your recommendation!

Gut and scale them (scaling's not all that necessary), salt and pepper, and fry lightly in olive oil until browned on both sides. Crispy and delicious, bones, heads, and all!
May the fish be mighty and the seas be meek...

my  GGF,Grandfathers, Uncles etc  were fishermen from Genoa Italy  ..my Nonna would clean em, cut em in chunks, saute em in olive oil /garlic  and just toss em in pasta  ..sometimes she would do garlic ,olive oil and Panchetta w/the Chovies   simple but good

Thanks! I will give that a try. The only time I had fresh anchovies was in Italy. It was anchovy antipasto.

I wish I had that many anchovies to try out the different recipes. But I landed the salmon too early.  :smt012 :smt003

Don't jinx your salmon mojo .... lol ... just go back to HMB and jig them up, so thick, deep, and wide.  Heck, do some salmon fishing while you are there!

Take the head off, scale them and deep fry them.
