2nd Appetizer: Fried Anchovies with Onions [77] [101.3%] [Score: 4.0]
Author: Nyonya Cooking [Grace Teo]
Cuisine: Malaysian 
Dish Type: Side

Quite a disappointment, the anchovies weren’t crispy :(. I’ve slightly overcooked the anchovies under medium-low heat. Removed from heat. Cooked the onions then put in the fried anchovies and chilies. The anchovies weren’t crispy after that. Any idea, Grace? Thank you.

  • Helena Cheah:

    Hi, you eat it straight or later?

  • Robin:

    Ate it straight and ate it later. It was all the same - chewy :(

  • Helena Cheah:

    Oh. Use low heat to fry the anchovies. And make sure the water is dried up when you fried the onion . Off the heat only put in the anchovies.

  • Helena Cheah:

    When the anchovies is completely dried during the frying it will become crispy.

  • Helena Cheah:

    Low heat and don’t over crowded the pan. If a lot of anchovies. Fry them in batches.

  • Robin:

    I suspect the water is not dried up when I fried the onion .

  • Mira - Community Happiness Manager:

    Were the anchovies crispy after frying? Helena have very good tips here.

  • Robin:

    I didn't taste the anchovies after frying under low heat and no overcrowding. I fried the anchovies a little overcooked. Therefore, I assumed they should be crispy.

  • Robin:

    I believed it must be the water was not dried when I fried the onion.
