I remember having this ever since I was a child. Often served as a side dish, I would gleefully enjoy sampling a spoonful or two before mealtime. It was too hard to resist. Fried anchovies are slightly salty with a tinge of spiciness that bring up the delectable flavour and would surely appeal to your taste buds. It is almost impossible to mess up even if you are a newbie.
This is now my to-go dish at home. Just some fried anchovies with onions and a fried egg, I will happily gobble my rice heartily till the last grain. What I realized about this dish is that it is great as an appetizer just before a delicious meal. As it perks up the appetite, your guests will be expectantly craving for the next dish! If you are planning to have something light to go with beers, try this out. Just ensure that the beers are chilled.
