Celebrate the reopening of the fishing in Adriatic with tasty Fried Anchovies and Sage
Share

For those out there that think of anchovies as “bait” taste again!

The oily anchovies pair perfectly with the savory flavor of sage, dipped in a light batter and fried quickly until golden they are absolutely addictive & perfect with a glass of white wine before dinner. Commonly overlooked, but absolutely delicious is the blue fish family or pesce azzuro – anchovies, sardines, mackerel, etc. they are not only flavorful but rich in omega 3 fatty acids.

The Fried Anchovies with Sage recipe celebrates the reopening of the Adriatic Sea for fishing. Every year, the Adriatic closes fishing for six weeks in the summer – hey even the anchovies need a holiday!
