So, what is anxoves?

Anchovies, or "anxoves" in Catalan, are small saltwater fish that belong to the Engraulidae family. These tiny, silvery creatures pack a powerful punch of umami flavor, making them a popular ingredient in many cuisines around the world. Their distinctively salty taste can add depth and complexity to a range of dishes, from Caesar salads to pizza toppings. Although anchovies are often used in their preserved form - packed in oil or salt - they can also be enjoyed fresh, grilled or fried. Whether you love them or hate them, there's no denying that anchovies bring a unique and unforgettable flavor to any dish.
