So, what is anchovy paste?

Anchovy paste is a savory and pungent ingredient made from pulverized anchovies. The paste boasts a strong, concentrated umami flavor with a slightly salty profile that elevates the taste of any dish it's added to. It's a staple in Mediterranean and Southeast Asian cuisine, where it's used as a base for sauces, dips, dressings, and marinades. Anchovy paste is also an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining good health. This versatile ingredient adds depth and complexity to many dishes, making it a must-have for any serious home cook or professional chef.
