Title: OK, I Like Anchovies. Is That So Wrong?
Post by: arewethereyetdad on August 07, 2005, 12:24:41 AM
I ordered pizza tonight - anchovies.  The guy who took my order acted like I was the first guy who ever ordered 'em.  Nobody else in my family likes 'em.  But I love 'em.  Am I sick?   :laughing7:  I also love sushi, but, again, nobody else in my family likes it.   :rolleye:

I'm a sushi addict but I'm pretty sure that I've never had anchovies before.  What do they taste like?

I like anchovies to cook with. Mashed and lightly fried with onions, garlic and red peppers, it makes a savory base for a red sauce.

Wilkey

PS. I will admit that I was so hungry once while shopping that I bought and ate half a tin of anchovies. God that was terrible.

PS. Zen, they are the fishiest, saltiest things that most people will ever put in their mouths.

Ginseng, thanks for floating with me on that lonely boat!  Zen, I will add that they also can be hairy, in addition to ultra-salty.   :D

Ancho-VEEZE!  Ancho-VEEZE!  Although I do eat'em on pizzas like AWTYD, I have personally opened a can like Ginseng -- and LIKED'EM!!!  'Course I cheated a little by rolling them up around olives or Maui onion bits with a toothpick stuck through the middle and ate'em that way...:thumbsup::headbang:

Love my anchovies as well, though I gotta take care not to add too much (too salty). Just the right amount adds that extra special kick to pizza.  :happy1:

PS: Sushi rules, too. But knock off the wasabi. (personal preference)

I think food preferences also depend on what you've been exposed to and what you've enjoyed, some folks don't seem to enjoy their food or trying various new things.. I can't imagine that though.

We all seem to be agreed.  Although I once did the eat-out-of-the-tin thing, and I was not all that impressed.  :icon_puke_r:

I'm DEFINITLY an anchovie fan, but would not want them on EVERY pizza I ordered..  I'm more of a "outta the tin" with a beer on the side style "nibbler".  I handle then somewhat like kim chee and pickled garlic cloves.

Guess the kids take after the wife's tastes in food? :)

I hear the secret of getting kids to be less fussy eaters is to feed them everything when they're young, although I would have no experience in that area (ponder why I still have $$ to buy extremely expensive glass and lights with only my Paypal account as a speed brake).

As for garlic and anchovies....YER MAKIN ME HUNGRY!! And the pizza company around here doesn't even do such wonderful delicacies, they just serve up cookie cutter pizzas which have no inspiration at all.

Post by: Braniac5 on August 15, 2005, 05:19:28 AM
I gotta admit, I hate anchovies on pizza, totally ruins the whole pizza for me.

 I do like to eat rolled up anchovies with the caper in the middle on crackers though. And sometimes I eat the flat ones out of the can, but only when there's nothing better to eat.

I eat sushi all the time, and sashimi is one of my favorites. I can eat a boat for two easily.  And I like smoked oysters and clams too, either straight from the can with a toothpick or on crackers.

Put those on crackers. Have some cream cheese, eat one cracker with cream cheese and the next with the oysters. Alternate between the two toppings. It's almost like a meal in and as of itself..

Yep, that's exactly what I did.  I used Ritz crackers but I usually use regular Krispy saltines, which is my favorite.  The saltier the better, none of this low sodium crap.  And I had a soft garlic cheese spread, along with some olive tampenade.  A cracker for each, then start the cycle over.  All the while reading MBF.  :thumbup:

I love Anchoivies and Sushi as well. Try to get some fesh anchoivies some day. They're also salty but much less so than the canned variety. All I remember about them is having this amazing pizza on the Island of Capri back in the early 70's. It was a two step pizza ( Baked & fried) with fresh anchovies, garlic and itlaian eggplant and tons of basil. I haven't had a better pizza since. Sigh! :-[
*A hot tip for you guys that make your own pizzas from scratch. Anchoivies are not really supposed to be eated out of the can ( that's an Americano habit). You should really rinse them in some cold water to wash off the xcess salt off,and patting them dry before dousing them with some olive oil and then  laying them on the pizza.
Bon Appetito !

Now ya got me thinking........been awhile since I had the pleasure of fresh oysters placed on a hot Weber BBQ grill till the shell POPs open just a crack, then opened the rest of the way...scooped out still hot and dipped in a Shoyu and Tabasco mixture. No better way to enjoy them than with a group of friends "Talking Stories".

Mmmmmmmmm!

Now you're talking.  It's been a while since I had those too.  I used some of that Vietnamese hot sauce in place of tabasco, but basically the same idea.  Just pop open that hinge with a flathead screwdriver and slurp them oysters down and chase it with some beer.  :thumbup:

I've got three different types of anchovies opened. ones that came in a tin is transfered to a tiny glass jar, since I only nibble small amounts at a time.

found one particular brand is way better than others, but I threw away the tin. can't remember the brand  :angry1:

one type's not worth eating alone, but needs to cooked into pizza or something....

Cranked open a can of anchovies tonight and put them on my pizza.  Damn, that's good.  I think I'll start doing that on all my pizza.

I can just imagine Troy with the ARC AA Slut, a can of anchovies, and now whips and leg-irons?

 :laughing8:  Nah, the Slut doesn't get anywhere near anchovies.  I've got her hob-knobbin' with some higher-class figures, like LC, LH's and McLux's.

I cranked open another can of anchovies last night and put it on my leftover pizza from the night before.  Amazing how that brings day old pizza back to life!

The photos are great!  I love this thread!  Glad to see so much activity on it - still can't get over the number of folks on this planet who (a) love flashlights, (b) spend time looking/shopping for them, (c) like anchovies, and (d) spend time talking about both.  We're alot more alike than we ever could have imagined.  :icon_scratch: :thinking:

While cracking open the can, I managed to spill the olive oil.. what a fearsome thing oil can be! But wowowooww nice salty anchovies!

I ate half a can on crackers, leaving the rest for another night of decadence :icescream:

As I said on another thread, we are the people who share a taste for the best.. fish included! Of all things, today, I ended up eating a pizza with someone else, and I was thinking "WHY are there no anchovies in this!" then I realized.. "Maybe it's because I'm sharing it.."  :brushteeth:


I hereby present.... FLAT FILLETS OF ANCHOVY:
(http://kevin.htgk.org/anchovies2.jpg)


PS: I have never seen an anchovy prior to it being, uhh.. "postprocessed". I take it that these are whole fillets and they are not very big fish at all?

Anchovies are Goof!

but smoked oysters are one of the few things that, depite near starvation hunger (years ago at University), came back up in less than 2 minutes..... Never again.

Of course I did buy the oysters at Big Lots...... Could that have affected the outcome?  I guess I'll never know.

lets not forget steamed muscels!

Actually, yes, I think it could have.  I bought a six-pack of anchovy tins from Costco (is anything there less than a six-pack?  :rolleye:) and it was not the greatest.  I definitely think one can buy old/cheap/low quality seafood.  I will always spend the extra buck from now on for the better stuff.  :thumbup:

Well, I know of a solution - drink enough booze and the alcohol will kill anything! Or at least that's what They tell me. I wonder that's just a pretext to not only have their oyster, but get drunk too.. sounds good to me though!

(http://kevin.htgk.org/oysters.jpg)

I must say the S&W ones are not as kickass as the John West ones in BBQ sauce. The S&W (pictured above) definitely need more salt.


Geologist's comment about mussels reminds me of one adventure I had almost ten years ago... a bunch of folks and I harvested something like 400 mussels from the shoreline, SOMEHOW managed to get them back to our place, turned it into a gigantic disaster area as we furiously scraped the mussels sending marine clay and soil and everything flying around. Then we threw the mussels into cold water - those that floated to the top were immediately discarded, because that was a sure sign they'd been dead for some time. After the rinse, it was into HOT water - yup, boiled. Plain. No nothing, no condiments.

Best seafood I've ever eaten.

The year after that, they passed a law declaring it illegal to harvest mussels. But I was damn glad to have the chance to have eaten while I could.. :icon_biggrin:

I think you've got it, or it's that he likes the camera I'm using.

Yeeeessssssss, the Canon 350D with 17-85 lens WILL bring out every last detail in whatever it's focused on :icon_biggrin:

... that includes oysters shot at 53mm, 1/60 f/5.6 with onboard flash. :rotflmao:


BTW, once you salt 'em a little bit, the oysters are really good. Speaking of fish in a can, there are sardines in ketchup over here but not as tasty as what we've been eating.

Ah, there are worse looking ones, like the geoduck clam (that looks like your.. *AHEM* for guys), or beef nuts (from the bull - use your imagination), or unhatched chicks in egg. Never had any of the above except the first (and once it's all nicely cooked you can hardly tell anyway).

As for oysters, eat up. Once it's on the way down you don't think too much about how good it looks. Folks like me take photos to tease ;)

Ah Oysters! The pearls of the seafood family. I remember the first time I had a raw one in the shell- I was 12 and nearly threw up! Later I grew to love them. Canon's Seafood up here serves up a killer oyster platter sandwich. Makes me so frisky after ( high zinc content) ... I'd hump a bus if I had the chance to. The very best Oyster I ever ate was in my sister's town (Ferney Voltaire) The French will eat them chiilled - freshly shucked with dry white wine for BREAKFAST ! I must say, if you haven't really tasted an oyster that way - you should try it- it's very bracing. >:(

I'll pass on the anchovies, fish and oysters are great but the pizza fish I pass on.  Waaaaaay too much salt!  My dad used to eat anchovies, pickled pigs feet, pig knuckles and sardines with his buttermilk with crackers crunched in (I am not making this up!)  Scrapple I can do (meat from the pig skull face boiled off and then fried in corn meal and cut into thin squares)  Head cheese, nuts and guts I kindly pass on and I don't do fish eyes/brains.   I did smoke a heck of a brisket and 3 racks of ribs yestureday though... ahhh, now we are living!  :thumbup:

BTW, this one is for all you sushi/sashimi lovers.  Have you ever tried Hamachi Sashimi?  It's expensive as Hamachi can only be found in Japanese waters, but it's the best sashimi I've ever had!  If you haven't had it yet, ask for it the next time you go to the Sushi Bar, you won't regret it!  Just add a little wasabi to your shoyu(soy sauce) and there you go!

Can you please describe the taste of it? Oily, Smokey etc?

Maybe you could start a Brinkmann or Flashlight thread - that would get nobody's attention!

OK....that was the *WRONG* thing to say... at least from Maxabaker's perspective :icon_biggrin:

I love squid and I have pictures! (at home - I'm at the office)  Over here we do it in many ways, but we cook it in chilli. Asian chilli, not American chilli (different recipes). Squid rings. Nice and HOT! Then there are variations in kunyit/tumeric powder (kind of spice powder).

We have the exotics in case you are visiting and feel up to it :D but in case you don't, there's always the standard deep fried calamari with tartar sauce.

Warning for Maxabaker: CAUTION - CONTAINS FISH (and related) MATERIAL. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.
















SQUID! Fried with onions and chilli sauce. I just ate and my mouth is already watering again. I had to whip out the camera QUICKLY, before the squid was finished by friends at the same table.. as you can see, it's not a full plate. :D

Actually, I don't think that is as bad as the clams/oysters/muscles :P

I've had calamari (or however you spell it) and I actually liked it. But if you bring an oyster within 5 feet of me, you're gonna be sorry you did :D

If you REALLY want to disgust me Lightstream, bring Lobster or Crab into the picture ;) Although I don't mind the taste of either of them, I got food poisoning (or something very close to it) from lobster...............................simply put, worst day of my life  :D

EXTREME CAUTION: CONTAINS OYSTER!




(http://pix.lightrefineries.org/ff/feast.jpg)

Top left corner: oyster OMELETTE. Yup, cooked oyster in omelette and this stuff is just awesome. It's a local dish, I'm not aware that it's done anywhere else in this world. In fact, you'd be able to conclusively identify where I took this photo based on that alone.

Top center:  more squid with chilli, half gone.

Bottom right: You work it out.. this is BBQ'ed with nothing more than salt and garlic and a small round lime that you squeeze yourself. AWESOME.


If any of you are stopping by this side of the Asia Pacific, look me up and we'll go on an eating expedition. That's just about the only interesting thing to do here apart from testing lights in the dark occasionally.

Myself and his mother found Brandan having a seisure and foaming at the mouth in front of his computer just minutes ago. Very slight chance of survival say the doctors................You'll likely be seeing his obituary in tomarrow's newspaper.

We at FF are concerned over his untimely demise. It sounds very much like an unfortunate case of an unhealthy addiction to seafood of various kinds which resulted in him seeking fulfilment on the Internet and being unable to stop even though the warning signs were in place. Perhaps the early intervention of psychological help, a parental ban from entering places where oysters are served, or the installation of Internet-access blocking software coiuld have deterred him from deliberately looking at an otherwise innocent discussion of food to the point where he drove himself over the edge.

Remember, oysters don't kill people any more than guns :rotflmao:   (always thought it's the reverse - people kill oysters..  :rolf:)

I forget what kinda crab this was, but it was very tasty even though it wasn't seasoned in any way. The shell is soft, so you can easily break it open with your hands.

Eating crab is a skill; I used to be extremely poor at it and never really liked crab until a good friend taught me the proper technique of breaking and opening the various parts of the crab. Although I must say that from time to time, I think fondly of my Leatherman Wave and essentials such as the seriously beefy pliers on the front end, hacksaw blade, can opener and screwdriver bits :icon_biggrin:  some crabs have extremely tough shells, I remember I succeeded in cracking a crab once only to have the sharp edge of the shell leave me a gash on my finger.

Over here it is standard practice for the restaurants to supply a nutcracker - yup, it's exactly the one you're thinking of - for this kind of occasion.

Hmm..maybe I should tell them that - the NEW 2004 Wave, now all stainless steel, washable, the ultimate crab-eating multitool!

Good to see this thread ALIVE and well !  Anyways, I was at my favorite Korean resturant recently (sorrry, no pix  :'( ) and one of the "side-dishes" they serve (most are kimchee-type veggies) is some sort of "dried minnows".  Texture is a bit stiff and they are salty, but that is good too assist in pushing down .5 liter of Sake. ;)  I wound up eating the damned bowl of those critters last time.

Yeah! Amazing isn't it. The British are brilliant at devising ways to flavor blandly cooked foods. The genius of Worcestershire is combining Soysauce with Anchovies. They may well have pinched the concept from the asians that often flavor with fish sauce and soy sauce in the same dish.
Tiny dried anchovies are used in a lot of recipes as well.
My fav is a Sri-Lankan Eggplant curry- braised with a sprinkle of dried anchovies. Ummmm !

When you grill venison that way, are you constantly basting it to keep it from getting dry, or do you simply not cook it till it's well done. what kind of temperature etc???

maintaining correct temperature is really important in smoking meats.
225F to 250F is correct range preferring to stay in 225 area.
if temp is lower than 225, meats will cook but not taste same.

No baste is needed if you watch temp in all but leanest meats.
deer is one of leanest meats you will find. if prepared correctly
will give no wild taste at all.

largest rear quarter was smoked for 7+ hours and was left in smoker while
charcoal used slowly died.

best fuel to use is natural lump charcoal using a chiminey to start.
no lighting fluid is used.

My BBQ is some of the finest made anywhere!

MMMmmmmm...

that entire batch of smoked deer was either goobled up by boy scouts and/or given away.

been slowly sauteeing in butter, tenderloins. MMMMmmmm....

apologies to those of you who don't have deer close by to harvest.
In US and Canada deer is plentiful and need to be harvested to prevent
starvation of deer.

always live by the creed that if you hunt and kill an animal, you are duty obligated to use that animal to fullest.
exception is pests like grackles and rodents :D

lots of chances to shoot squirels, but since I don't feel like eating a squirel. (hear they'er good eating) never will shoot one.
broke in a new skinning knife on this deer. looked three years to get one of these" Bow Hunting Buddy" hand made by Newt Livesay.

"lots of chances to shoot squirels, but since I don't feel like eating a squirel. (hear they'er good eating) never will shoot one."
I trapped a squirel when I was around 13. Dad directed me to then eat it! Thanks to a Mom that was expert in 'jugging' game, it tasted delicious, somewhere between venison and a rabbit though more bland than a rabbit for sure.
Squirels are members of the rodent family, which may be why so many people around the world eat them and rats.
Geeze! howd we get here from anchovies !? LOL !

Yeah! Amazing isn't it. The British are brilliant at devising ways to flavor blandly cooked foods. The genius of Worcestershire is combining Soysauce with Anchovies. They may well have pinched the concept from the asians that often flavor with fish sauce and soy sauce in the same dish.

mmmmmmmm, fish sauce.

I just had a pizza yesterday with anchovies.. wonderful, except there weren't enough anchovies and there were too many shrimps in it. Now, I should have ordered the meat lovers with extra anchovies instead..... oh well, next time!

As visible in my sig, I'm on vacation and I have had the chance to sample many exotic eats again. My generous host shared a smoked eel two nights ago, and it was good!

Then cut the head off the eel before digging in.. the rest of us not so squeamish can do it for you if necessary, or actually, I think the guy at the shop will remove it if you ask nicely. :D

Fish eyes are not very appealing to me because they don't taste very good. When we eat curry fish head, we usually leave the eyes for the experts, who also dig out the brain and eat it.

What's a little bit harder is killing and cooking crab. We were eating crab one night and I noticed the meat stuck to the shell, something which is not common, so I asked him.. it seems that the crab died struggling and that accounts for it. Apparently you have to stake it, which can be problematic if you miss. I much prefer my colleague's approach of using a cleaver and aiming for dead center of mass. I just recalled another method using the freezer, not sure how effective that is. It's a dirty business.. and you know what they say, folks can go vegetarian if they don't want to deal with it.

I noticed three things....

1. AWTYD has an affinity for Canon colors (hint: buy a Canon as your next camera). Canon has a particular 'look' I like.

2. The anchovy thread is #5 on the statistics list. Keep it that way, or move it up, even better. see stats (http://flashlight-forums.com/index.php?action=stats)

3.

Lightstream, I noticed three things here as well:

1. The Anchovy thread has been a hit from Day #1 and continues moving up the "most posts" ladder.  Soon it will overtake the Chameleon threads.  HAAhaahahahahahahahahaha. :evil6:

2. That tin of anchovies is truly mouth-watering (I have a sushi appt. in less than one hour, yeah baby).

3. AWTYD has an affinity for YOUR Canon photos, not just any Canon photos.  I know.  I am on my fourth Canon digital (PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph) and my photos SUCK in comparison to yours.  It's really sickening, actually, how much worse my photos are than yours.

Thanks for the compliment :) Ehh.. surprised to hear your Canon is not delivering the goodies? I liked the colors even from my Powershot S40. Be careful of firing the flash too close to the subject, it tends to overexpose and wash out the colors. Stand a little way back and zoom in. Post or PM me a few and I'll see if I can help you out.

hmmm... this is turning into a camera thread :D

been using a cheapy sony 3.2 mp for all my pic's. it's been a learning experience dealing with an auto everything camera.
especially focus when trying to achieve closeup shots.

to get around autofocus, place camera closer to object than you will end up taking picture position. gently press shutter button to freeze autofocus but not release shutter. then while still holding button, move back until object is in focus. press shutter to take pic

Lightstream, I have been shooting without flash lately.  Way better shots overall.  The camera is intelligent enough to pick up whatever light it can from the room.  My biggest problem, I've found, is that on extreme closeups it requires a tripod or some other form of steady support. 

Anyway, to keep this on topic, let us know how the anchovies went with red wine and crackers.  :drunk:

Yeah sometimes the cameras do require additional support for available-light shooting. Available-light shots tend to be nicer than the harsh flash ones.

Anchovies + wine + crackers.. good stuff - try it some time. :icon_biggrin:

This is what we had for Thanksgiving dinner this year on our Colorado family reunion/ski trip:

(http://darkgear.com/mrbulk/cpf/Sushi2.jpg)

Lotsa raw stuff there (yum yum!), and we had this only because we celebrated Thanksgiving - and ate turkey and fixin's - on Tuesday because one of the families had to fly out Wednesday morning  By Thursday we were pretty tired of Thanksgiving food, especially after two days of leftovers.

And I sure wish I had some a this in front of me right now!  :'(

While we're on the topic of this kind of food, the rolls remind me that you need to dip them in the olive oil and the black balsamic vinegar. I prefer more vinegar and less oil - love the vinegar! (healthier too I suppose)

Riminese don't do that thing- dipping bread in the oil. The oil goes on the salad and the rolls are eaten with the salad- e cosî !
Ok...let's see if I can dig up a new dish for you... OK . Here's alunch shot from this past Summer. My neighbors have a prolific Basil patch that keeps me busy making pesto for the the whole hood it seems !

EGG NOODLES ???? Bite Your Tongue! ( Kidding ) They are actually Linguine, which are NOT made with egg.
Durum Somolina Flour and Water only. Most Italian Commercial Dry pasta is made that way- flour & Water only.
Egg is mostly used in fresh pasta, giving it far greater tenderness- appropriate for many forms such as Ravioli etc.
A daily lunchtime 'primo'  of Italian pasta is likely to contain no egg.

That photo of the green-shell mussels got me to "jones-in" for some..  So I hit the local seafood buffet (ONLY $11.98 - what a deal for all-yo-can-eat crab, ahi and everything else).

(http://webs.lanset.com/ecvslick/buffet.jpg)

Unfortunately my photo isn't as good as some I've seen - I need more practice with this camera >:(

Anyways, I usually eat about 3 or 4 plates of crab & a couple of the various sushi, unagi, tobiko, salmon & ~ 9 mussels before hitting the fresh fruit & desert tables! :thumbup:

I have been known to spend 3 hours on lunch alone, but the crab takes a bit of time and is not as filling as the other fare.

Oh yeah, Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all!

The first time I ever tried green shell mussels was at the sushi bar and an order of 3 mussels was $8.50.....  I wind up eating 6 - 9 of them when I hit the buffet, so after all the crabs I wind up eating (about 3 - 4), I know its a real killer deal.  I can't even come close buying crab at Costco.  I feel very lucky to have access to such a collection of wonderful resturants - the ONE thing Kaliforneeya excels in.

Getting good fresh fish in Germany (at least in the south) is not the easiest task.  Kinda funny at some of the local (good quality) fish stores that when youi specify that you are using it for sushi, they will not sell you the stuff out front, but will go to the back for the FRESH stuff.

We took a sushi class at the local community education center about 5 years ago - most of the fancy rolling techniques I have long forgotten for sure.  Really great stuff - especially the wasabe - gotta love it!

Good thing CY referred to it as American-style. I've eaten Chinese food in America, Australia, and at home in the Far East, and believe me they are all very different :)

For example, I've never actually figured out what General Tso's Chicken tastes like - because you can't find it here in the Asia Pacific even with millions of ethnic Chinese as far as the eye can see. We do have some truly kickass dim sum though...... :icon_biggrin:

Also, I'll note that Australia has awesome dim sum because so many Hong Kong chefs migrated there and set up shop. It really does taste like the real thing. One only wishes the lemon chicken was as good as the real thing though.

Kinda funny that the "Fortune Cookie" despite the ledgend is an USA invention.  Kinda funny as the idea and the "legend" was exported back to Asia.

I agree - I have eaten Asain food in Asia, Europe, and the USA - all differnt.  Of course I have also eaten at McDs  from Moscow to California to Asia - and it also tastes different.  go figure!

Interesting thought - I've eaten MacDs at the above locations - and they all taste the same. Wow...I was pretty impressed by the consistency.

Agreed with you on the fortune cookie. Amazingly, I ate my first fortune cookie only when I got to the US, you can't find them here.

Post by: Geologist on January 29, 2006, 06:54:33 PM
In Asia - I couldn't single out a single distinction - course this was after weeks of eating local food in the north (Thailand).

The US McD's (as well as other processed US foods), taste sweeter.  No doubt about it.  The Moscow McD's had very different fries (later learned that some of the food sources were local hince the taste difference).

Interesting story about the Moscow McDs - it was (not sure now) the largest in the world seating over 900 people and having 26 cash registers.  When I was there (1990 as I recall), we had a short wait of only about 45 minutes to get in and eat.  They actually accepted Soviet currency at the time (which in 1990 - the Rubel was a soft currency) - which was a bit wild - I fed a party of 4 for about $1.50 - the way the Canadian owners were able to make money is that they would take the Russian Currency earned, and as per an agreement, would then purchase Russian vodka at local prices, then export the vodka back to the Can and voila - they were able to make a profit.

steaks are seasoned with plain ole black pepper, salt and fresh crushed garlic.

pork ribs are seasoned with a dry rub.

proccess is more important than which spice by a long shot.

this particular meal is prepared with a Hasty Bake with natural lump charcoal. started with a chiminey. no starter fluid.
for long run smoking like for a large brisket. I'll use an Oklahoma Joes smoker. usually take 10-14 hours to smoke with real wood. indirect heat.

I'll use hickory, Oak, pecan, apple etc.

I read an article in the Southwest Airlines magazine last week about real pizza.  Seems the Italians have special guidelines for authentic pizzas.  Have to be thin crust, hand-made, of course, with hand-made tomato sauce from a particular type of tomato only.  And, this is the interesting part: the mozzarella must be scattered such that it does NOT cover the entire pizza.  Just sprinkled on lightly.  Can't remember the rest of the guidelines, but that's the gist of it.

Most of that is true. But you know they make it differently depending on the region. In Toscana ( Tuscany) it's fairly thick crust - rarely perfectly round and often lacking in tomato and if you're near Parma, it may have paper thin slices of Parmagianno Reggiano along with a light smattering of Mozzarella De Buffo. In Florence, they top thier with braized Spinach, Ricotta, Whole Garlic cloves and steamed broccoli florettes  . In Toscana they may use eggplant slices with onion and black oliives or Zuchinni , Ricotta and Rabbit haunches. In Capri, the pizza is first 1/2 baked then it's actually fried on a large griddle. This Pizza Capriciossa I had many years ago had FRESH anchovies caught the day before, small black olives Garlic, a smattering of tomato and of course, liberal amounts of First pressing Virgin Olive Oil. In the hundreds of Pizzas  combined that  I've made and eaten since 1982 - nothing could match that one from Capri! The Sicilians and Islanders in general (Capri , Sicily, Sardenia) do like thier crust thin, The Neopolitans like it thicker (deep dish) . As I said, I've made more than a few from scratch and there are some secret tricks to getting it right. Few American restaurants I've eaten in get it right because the dough is often outsourced or just frozen ( yuck) . Georgio of Takoma, Park Maryland and Tony's in Grenwitch Village , NY are about as close to the real thing as I've had it. I'm sure many neighborhoods in big cities like NYC, Chicago will have at least one decent place for Pizza. Most everything else you've eaten just kinda looks like like the real thing and sure, you get dough + tomato sauce + Wisconsin  Mozzarela.  Mozzarella de Buffo and home grown Italian tomatoes are way different. Ah! I'd better stop! I could go on and on on this subject :D
I'll try to dig up some of my Pizza snap shots soon...

I ordered pizza tonight - anchovies.  The guy who took my order acted like I was the first guy who ever ordered 'em.  Nobody else in my family likes 'em.  But I love 'em.  Am I sick?   :laughing7:  I also love sushi, but, again, nobody else in my family likes it.   :rolleye:


Is it wrong to love anchovies? No.  I recall tasting one a long time ago.  I guess that was enough.

Why is it when people order pizza they always say, "... and no anchovies." ?  I never said "no sock" either, yet I never got a pizza with a sock.  Which in my humble opinion would be better than anchovie.   After two pies I'd have a pair.

If you want to have some fun, order your next pizza with double no anchovie.  I think that was part of a skit from "The electric company" on pbs.

After I was finished with it the pizza was actually quite tasty.  ;)

I have not had the Sacred Fish of FF (the Holy Anchovy of course) in 2 months... yes, I am suffering :P

I wonder if I should try to make that anchovy butter at long last. Especially since I have the opportunity to cook without others throwing pots and pans at me..

Yes, I'd say go for it.  We all want to know how it turns out.  I had anchovies on my caesar salad on Saturday night.  Man oh man, that was good.  :D

How did I miss this thread??

All through high school my favorite toppings on pizza is double cheese and anchovies.. Great munchie food and it kept my friends from eating it.. It is still my favorite..

Over the past couple years as an evening snack I have been putting             destemmed portobello mushrooms (about 4") on a plate, covering them with shredded Swiss cheese and capping it off with an anchovy, 20 seconds on high..
Food from the gods.. ;)

Back home we have fish head curry, and it is literally served as just the head of the fish, eyes and all, looking up at you from the bowl. And it is pretty DAMN flaming hot the way some of the places do it.

You're right about the eyes - they are chewy, but eating them makes a great party trick.  Headmeat is primo stuff, no question.

Wow, brains and eyes are only left to the most skilled expert fishhead eaters amongst my guys. One of them knows his way around so well he can extract the brains without making a mess of the whole fish - he just fiddles a little with a fork and spoon and out it comes and nobody can figure out how!

The rest of us are a little more pedestrian, we just eat whatever meat's left on the head and go for the curry...

watch out for the brains though- tons of cholesterol in there and yes- there's a trick to sneaking it out but I love to just stab the bastard head with my fork - just to make my Chinese housemate squirm with disgust- by then she's half green from watching me dispatch the two eyeballs! What is in those eyeballs that make them so...TASTY ?? ;) >:(

I have anchovy and black olive pizza, fear me.

(and ham, mushroom and cheese in generous quantities)....

When I ordered they asked me "Do you like anchovies?"  and I said "Heck yes" thinking of this thread :icon_biggrin:

It's nice and salty too, goes perfectly with the rest of the pizza.

Yeah, I know.  I haven't had lunch.  And I just lost my appetite.

Especially after this thread reminded me of a Discovery Channel show on defensive tactics of sea creatures.  I don't remember what species of fish it was, but there is a small salt-water fish that uses the anus of sea cucumbers as a means of avoiding predators.  Yeap, they showed one of these fish swimming backwards up into the sea cucumber.  Then back out.

I still love fish, but they've gotta be big enough that I know they've not gone where the sun don't shine!

Ewwww.  I hope it wasn't my friend the anchovy.  Last I heard from him was he told me he was straight.   :rotflmao:

Here's a dish I just made (and ate): Penne con tonno ed acciughe (Pasta tubes with tuna and ANCHOVIES)

12oz Penne Noodles
4 tablespoons Olive Oil
2oz Butter
7oz Canned Tuna
1 3/4oz Can of ANCHOVY FILLETS
Finely chopped Garlic (as much as you want!)
Salt and Black Pepper to taste
Garnish with finely chopped Parsley

Cook the pasta
Heat the oil and butter in a pan and throw in the tuna, ANCHOVIES and garlic. Mash them together and cook until nice and hot.  Add pepper and salt (if needed!).

Drain the cooked past when "al dente" and mix with the fish sauce. Sprinkle with parsley.

Put on plates and eat.

That was absolutely magnificent. I just cooked Rebel's recipe and it smells fantastic. Not your usual pasta smell. It smells like stuff from a high end pasta joint, not my kitchen. It's brilliantly simple, one of the easiest things I've had to dish up, tastes bloody good too, and hardly needs salt thanks to the anchovies.

(http://pix.lightrefineries.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=524&g2_serialNumber=1)

Lighting's a little flat but you'll excuse me because I'm in a hurry to EAT the goodies, not take pics.. I love photography yes, but food comes first ;)

Funny, the other day this chick (and not all that good looking either) called me 'mommy's boy' because I cook. I thought mommy's boy is the one who runs home to her cooking? Either way I enjoy the freedom to experiment with the good stuff like this - and it's dang good! Just shows that REAL men cook... I know someone else who cooks well enough to pay off his Canon 300 f/2.8 IS USM L too! (and the 1DsMk2 and the list goes on....)

I'm thinking about another variation with cream sauce..

It's funny, after reading this thread, i had the urge for some anchovies....

....thing is, i've never had them before, but i've always hear horror stories about them, salty, oily and pungent, by all accounts, a repulsive food....

then i realized, i *LOVE* sushi, and i love other strong foods, like Stilton blue cheese, Garlic, things like that

so tonight i hit the grocery store, picked up a tin of Roland Rolled filets of anchovies with capers, and a tin of King Oscar flat filets, got home, and cracked open the tin of Rolands, put the roll on a Ritz Top'em cracker, and ate it.....


not bad, not bad at all, i actually *like* these things, now i know why Docrtor Zoidberg, my favorite background character in Futurama, and the rest of his people (Decapodians) fished the Anchovy to extinction


they're, as Fry put them, "all fishy and oily and they melted in your mouth", no wonder Zoidberg reacted the way he did when encountering the last tin in existence in the Futurama episode "A Fishful of Dollars" (http://www.gotfuturama.com/Multimedia/EpisodeSounds/1ACV06/)

hmm, what a *perfect* way to enjoy my new taste treat, i'll pop in that episode....

Hey cool.....my preferred way is to eat them with Ritz too! (there had never really been any other way to eat 'em straight from the can, for me at least).

Congratulations to our new convert!! You are the chosen one!!

I always laugh when my pizza joint asks me "You sure you want the anchovies on this one?" "YES, LOAD IT UP!!"

I went to Papa John's last week and ordered an anchovy pizza and the dude told me he couldn't make it for me.  I said, "what, why not?"  He told me he was allergic to the fish and he'd have to wait 'til some other dude arrived who could make it.   :rolleye:

okay, i've had a grand total of four tins of anchovies since my original post, and here's what i've discovered

i prefer the rolled anchovies with capers on ritz crackers, the flat filets are good too, but the rolled ones have that little extra *something*
they become a little easier to down after you rinse them in fresh water for a few minutes, nice *cold* water

the bonyness of the flats is a bit annoying, somehow the rolled ones seem to have less bones, or they're just less noticeable

maybe i should try an anchovy pizza next....

The infamous anchovy thread is it?

Down here in the islands the anchovies (some people refer to them as "nehu" over here, but anchovy sounds alot better)

they have dispersed and are hard to find now.  Theres sardines but there better off as bait than for food.

I miss those little anchovies...they were awesome.  You can get a little boat and go right into the school and they'll just jump right in.  And at night when you shine 1000+ lumens at the school (its a neat site to see)

Yes I was thinking that it was time we talked anchovy.

If I wasn't so lazy I'd have taken some anchovy related photos.

Anchovy paste is a product worth buying for anchovy eaters:
http://www.shopping.com/xPO-Rizzoli_Imported_Italian_Anchovy_Paste_Pasta_Di_Acciughe

I often spread it on the base of my cheese toast along with sundried tomato paste (or normal tomato paste) olive oil, garlic paste and dried oregano.

Here's a few recipes that include the use of anchovies:

The anchovy butter is quite simple. You need to mash the anchovy, sprinkle black pepper, and then blend with softened butter. Same for the garlic butter, just blend, and you should be all right.

I cannot quite believe the supermarket I go to does NOT have garlic butter or garlic spread. Such blasphemy. Then I realized, why complain? If I can do better using fresh garlic and fresh butter - I win!
Title: Re: OK, I Like Anchovies. Is That So Wrong?
Post by: Rebel on October 16, 2006, 09:22:34 PM
I always make my own garlic butter too.  I crush fresh garlic into the butter and mash the two together. Often I add olive oil to give it a little different flavour.

I like to buy a baguette, cut slices across the width without going all the way through and fill the cuts with home made garlic butter.  I then dampen the crust with a little water and bake it for about ten minutes in a medium oven. 

But what's this got to do with anchovies?  Nothing I guess. I know, I eat the garlic bread with anchovy pizza.

Naaw, garlic and anchovy butter share the same technique. Mash anchovy (or use the paste?) into the butter. They also recommend cracked pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.

I am a big sucker for garlic bread. I wonder how it would be if we combined both recipes - garlic + anchovy on baguette? :P

I like what they call "capriccosa" here. Ham, cheese, mushrooms (LOTS OF mushroom). The anchovies are hidden underneath in between all of that and the crust, they lend a wonderful salty flavor to the whole concoction. Definitely my favorite pizza flavor. Dang it, I just ate, and now describing it is making me want to rush out and eat one!

I'll take some pics next time I have one in the house.

Heh, looks like i'm not the *only* one who loves anchovies/smoked oysters/other preserved seafood....

tonight i cracked open a tin of smoked oysters for a change, and sat down on the bed with a box of Ritz crackers, ready to watch the second reel of Battlestar Galactica

lounging on the bed were our two cats, Blue and Nemo, they normally couldn't care less about the food i eat while watching TV, they just want to lounge on the bed with me (these are the most doglike cats you'd ever meet, they *like* people....)

as soon as i sat down on the bed with the oysters, their heads immediately perked up and turned in my direction, they stalked towards me with a singleminded purpose, they *WANTED* my smoked oysters, this was the only time i'd ever seen them agressively stalk my food....

so of course, i *had* to share some with them (like i had a choice in the matter ;) ), they really loved them, they're frantically searching the room for any other opened tins of delicacies, but there aren't any, we've eaten them all

(luckilly they haven't figured out where i stash the anchovies, and thank Og they don't have opposable thumbs....)

Ok...500 posts in this sucker and I wanna know...

Has anybody mentioned uni yet? You know, Sea urchin roe....like you find at good sushi shops.

I'll never forget the taste sensation the first time I ate that stuff. It's kinda' like the ocean exploding inside your head. But in a good sorta way. I find that the normal 'battleship wrap' style sushi with uni is/can be a little overpowering. I like to have the chef include it in a hand roll, to smooth out the taste a bit.

I knew one chef that ate it in small dabs, straight from the back of the hand...not sure I could handle that.  :puke:

Uni... yumm.
 
Urchins being what they are, the roe does double duty as eggs and gonads.
That "explosion" in your mouth? Well...  ;)

Here's a school of Anchovy at approximately 15M depth.

Hummm.  I may never look at anchovies in, the same way, again.  They do look tasty from that perspective.  There may be hope for me yet.  Naaah, I think I'll start a Limburger Cheese thread.  Now there's something I reeeely like!  :)  Good for you too, provided you don't want to live to a "ripe old age".  The "ripe" part allways bothered me anyway.  :D

Well depending on your tastes, perhaps substantially MORE than 50 pizzas :)

You're probably looking at over 2000 cubic meters (nearly 600,000 Gallons) there.  Even after you drain the water, pickle the petite pelagics and cram their carcasses in a can, you end up with a whole lotta fish!  If you were to strategically sprinkle them on 50 Extra-Large Sicilian Pizzas, the tasty morsels would be piled several hundred meters high, which would be a bit "overpowering" flavor-wise, IMO. >:(

Nah, there was no room.  I'm the only one in the family who'll touch 'em, and besides we had too much of everything else, with the turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberries, green beans, rolls, etc.  Now comes the fun part: a relaxing weekend of eating, watching football with no stress (since the Chiefs won  :D) and playing with the kids.

traditional turkey dinner with mashed taters and ham here...

got a big ole beef brisket that's getting slow smoked with pecan wood for 10-12 hours.
have not fired up oklahoma joe smoker for quite a bit. been charcoaling a lot in a hasty bake instead.

Hmm....

You folks have seen me comment on how my flashaholism seems to be going away, but I find his work inspiring..  I am tempted to be drawn back in once more. Now that's powerful work.

In particular, I feel like reviving some of my old HID work. There was nothing that tore up the night like that awesome HID spot I built.. NOTHING comes close for the price/performance.

That was it, I ate it with sushi. 

There was also a cheap restaurant chain in Japan that sold thin slivers of beef with bowls of rice.  You sat at a bar (popular eating method there) and they always had as much pickled ginger as you liked on the counter.  I liked. I'd eat loads of the stuff.

Sadly I was out of anchovies and I needed some for a meal I was cooking.

However I had a tube of anchovy paste, hallelujah!  This is a good substitute when you just need the flavour of anchovies.  It's nice spread on cheese toast too if you're out of anchovies.

Reb, the ginger is really great!  I love eating tons of it with my sushi.  I think it's basically sort of designed as a mouth cleanser between different bites of sushi, as well as to cool a hot mouth that just partook of too much wasabe.  :D

Unfortunately, I'm allergic to sea food. So whenever I order a favorite, the Caesar Salad, I'm careful to ask to "hold the anchovies." 99% of the time I'm told "that's ok, they aren't included." Whew.

Anchovies are bait, aren't they? ;)

Outside of Japan, sushi is sometimes misunderstood to mean the raw fish by itself, or even any fresh raw-seafood dishes. In Japan, however, sliced raw fish alone is called sashimi and is distinct from sushi

anchovie find... this little surprise tonight floored me!

one of the best anchovies I've tasted in quite sometime.
you know how some anchovies taste ... kinda of green.
like it's not quite ready for consumption.

not this batch, really nice texture and flavor... yum..
best of all it was $1.39 per tin.

last I found anchovies this good, it was $6.99 for a little glass jar.

I'm pretty sure they still do anchovy toppings here in the UK. I went to one of their restaurants a few months back and I think I had anchovies. Rubbish pizzas though, I don't know if my tastes have changed but I always remembered them as being pretty good for a fast food place, well not any more.

Title: Re: OK, I Like Anchovies. Is That So Wrong?
Post by: regentag on April 01, 2008, 04:02:21 AM
For a "decent" can, try Winn-Dixie.  For a sublime experience, try some of these (http://tienda.com/food/products/se-06.html).  Whole Foods usually has a good selection, but they tend to be a ripoff (only important if you become addicted). 

Others may disagree... but the better Catalonian and Cantabrian varieties are superior to all other Anchovy in every respect.  Unless you happen to be in Spain, they will always be in a can or a jar.

Still, for a Anchovy Virgin (AV) pulling an oily, salted fish out of a jar and slowly snaking it down your throat might be a bit of a stretch, even with the most delicate Cantabrian fillet!  A far less challenging alternative would be to go to an upscale steak house and order a proper Ceasar Salad with extra anchovies.  The flavor will be well masked, but nevertheless quite distinct.  If you're on good terms with the folks over at Emiliano's (http://tienda.com/food/products/se-06.html), I bet they could hook you up (might have to bring your own jar though).

If you decide to decide to go for 'option A', keep a cold one nearby.  They go great with beer.

Cheers!

yup.. that's how I got started with anchovies... ceasars salads.

anchovies in jars seems to be higher quality, but pricey. that's why I was surprised at quality of tin showed above.

EDIT:
DISCLAIMER

20% of my recent clam intake has been gifted for no apparent good reason by Mr Geologist so please credit where it is due.

Please boys and girls, don't go out there looking for the candiru purely on account of the prize as I'm reliably informed by a (the?) candiru specialist that the operation to remove said fish rarely costs less than 100,000 clams and is said to "sting a little".

I recently bought a jar of "Tesco's Finest" anchovies and very good they are too.

I put them on my cheese toast.  My cheese toast recipe goes like this:

Slice some home made whole-wheat bread nice and thickly. 
Toast under the grill on one side.
Take it out of the grill and spread on the UNtoasted side: Tomato paste, Olive oil, Crushed garlic, Oregano.
Grate or slice cheese on top of this - any firm cheese that takes your fancy (ie Cheddar, Emmantal, Gouda, etc).
Put it back under the grill until the cheese begins to melt then take out and put on anchovies (these can be cut up or entire).
Put slices of fresh tomato on top as well.
Put back under the grill until cheese is fully melted and slightly browned.
Eat.
