Marinated Anchovies

Written by Katie Parla on April 1, 2010

I just got back from three days on the Ligurian coast with Mamma Parla. We were in the Cinque Terre mostly, where anchovies are a specialty. They are served grilled, stuffed, fried, salted, and marinated in lemon. The latter perparation, called acciughe al limone, is pictured above. Fresh anchovies are decapitated, gutted, and “cooked” in lemon juice overnight. The result is fresh and tangy. I recommend trying them at Trattoria “Da Billy” in Manarola and La Lampara in Riomaggiore.
