Anchoide is a well-seasoned paste made using anchovy fillets. Spread it on French bread and serve it hot for a snack, preferably with a glass of chilled white wine.

Ingredients

  • 2 cans anchovy fillets
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 50 g/2 oz soft butter
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • freshly milled pepper
  • slices of French bread

    Method

    Pound the anchovies to a smooth paste with the peeled cloves of garlic. Add the olive oil, butter and wine vinegar. Season with plenty of pepper.

    Toast slices of French bread on one side only. Spread the anchoide thickly on the untoasted side, pressing down so that the flavour soaks in. Place in a hot oven for a few minutes before serving.
