Default Anchovy reputation problem

Anchovies get a bad reputation because of how they are used in pizzas. That use of them is suitable only for true aficionados of anchovies, of which there are few.

Anchovies are greatly underused, and are superb for adding savoriness to salad dressings and savory sauces and gravies. Mash them up with a mortar and pestle, then blend them into the sauce. The result should not taste like anchovy, but should be deliciously savory. That's the way to use an anchovy.

most anchovies we get here in the us aren't suitable for bait . when i was in france last year we went to a anchovy packing facility in collioure , france . the difference in fresh packed anchovies is startling . what are your favorite brands ?

I won't eat anything that smells like it's laid on the beach for a week.

Better used like seasoning than actual food.

I am the only person in my family to enjoy anchovies. Mashed and add to basic vinegar/olive oil salad dressing is good too. I eat them right out of the can...

Nah, I grew up with the wonderful smells emanating from my momma's kitchen, and nothing in that kitchen was spoiled like anchovies.
Fish and other sea food must smell fresh before I'll eat it.
