So, what is anchoa?

Anchoa, also known as anchovy, is a small, saltwater fish that is commonly used as a flavoring ingredient in various cuisines. These tiny fish are usually sold in cans or jars, preserved in salt or oil. Anchoas have a pungent and savory taste that adds depth and umami to dishes like Caesar salads, pizza, pasta, and tapas. They are also high in omega-3 fatty acids and protein, making them a healthy addition to any diet. Though often used sparingly due to their strong flavor, anchoas have been a staple ingredient in Mediterranean cooking for centuries.
