Ortiz Anchovies in Olive Oil (85g Jar)
The Kolikof Difference*:
The intense flavor and perfect texture of Ortiz anchovies are simply incomparable. With a perfect blend of fragrant yet subtle notes of virgin olive oil and fresh salt, Ortiz anchovies are sure to satisfy any craving.
Ortiz Anchovies are wild-caught from the Cantabrian sea; then salted, pressed, and matured in barrels for at least six months. Using a traditional craft method, they are then hand-filleted, packaged, and bathed and jarred in the finest olive oil. This pantry staple is ready-to-eat, straight from the jar. The perfect accompaniment to any antipasto or salad to liven up your tastebuds.
BEHIND THE PRODUCT:
Anchovies are widely referred to as different names depending on your geographical background. In general, ‘Anchovy’ and ‘Bocarte’ are terms used in Northern Spain; ‘Boqueron’ or ‘European Sardine’ is the common term in the south. Boquerones also often refer to a specific preparation of white anchovies, which are marinated in vinegar.
In North America, they’re often referred to as either Anchovies or Sardines. No matter what you call them, they stem from the same species.
Anchovies are a versatile ingredient—minced and mash them into salads, like the traditional Cesar salad. You could also incorporate them into a fresh vinaigrette and liven up other dishes. You could use them to garnish pasta dishes in a pinch. The rich flavors of Ortiz anchovies in olive oil are a great way to put a spin on a classic Pasta Aglio e Olio without overpowering the simple meal.
