Compared to surstromming, anchovies smell absolutely tasty.

yup make my fish white and fresh. Like them at least 8 inches long too. Don't want fish on my pizza or pizza sauce on my fish.

Fish and other sea food must smell fresh before I'll eat it.

I guess sardines are out of the picture also lol. I like the ones with the green chilies in them. But not the mustard or ketchup. Those like that are nasty tasting.

Im one of those try anything once kinda guys. Im not a big canned fish fan but when a friend ordered a anchovy pizza i tried it and it wasn't bad. It was a very strong salty fishy flavor but i would eat it again if given the chance. I might even order it (on half) if i could find a good pizza place that had it.

there are anchovies in a lot more foods than most people think.
just because there's not a whole anchovy poking out doesn't mean
there aren't any chopped up or ground up in the mixture.
start reading the ingredient list on your foods more often.
it'll surprise a lot of folks.

I only use these in a seafood sauce and I let them breakdown in olive oil with some garlic. Iím sure there are other good uses for them but that is how I use them.

Anchovies or sardines? Cat food as far as I'm concerned.

I like them. I used to take a can as part of my lunch when climbing. After sweating a lot of salt out on the ascent the salt from the fish seemed to hit the spot perfect.

Back in the last century I used to fish with live sardines as bait off the coast of southern California. I ate one raw as a bet one night. They are even saltier raw. Goes well with beer.

All of my favorite creatures have white bottoms.

I keep a can of filets as a pantry staple just for that reason. I use them anytime the recipe calls for a kick up of umami factor.

A good Vietnamese fish sauce is good to have around for that too. I'll use it instead of salt in some soups and stews and sauces.
