The idea of a can of fish that will keep forever may frighten some off, but to
us it’s the best thing about this large can of anchovies! Packed in salt, these
whole anchovies will keep indefinitely in the fridge once opened. They do
require a bit more work than their oil-packed brethren, but it’s well worth the
time: Remove the backbone and tail from the anchovy and soak, either in water
or milk, for 15 minutes to wash away some of the saltiness.
Once they’re prepped, you can mash the anchovies into Caesar salad dressing
or sauté them in olive oil as a base for pasta sauce, braised dishes and stews.
