OK, I Like Anchovies. Is That So Wrong?
« 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.

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.
