Anchovies, the ‘bread of the sea’
Anchovies, a precious small fish, are considered in the maritime tradition as the “bread of the sea” because they are easy to feed on other predatory fish and because they are available in abundance. Consumed fresh, over the centuries, it has been a basic dish of coastal populations but in the Middle Ages it began to be treated first with salt and then also with oil, in order to be consumed in the cold months and above all to be able to transport it away from the coasts.
This is how the long history of anchovy fillets begins, a versatile ingredient of our most typical and ancient gastronomic culture.
