Product Description

Agostino Recca, from Sciacca, Sicily, has become one of the most reliable producers of anchovies now being imported into the United States. The Recca family is not a stranger to quality, flavor and tradition.

These Recca Anchovies from Sicily are are whole salted fillets packed in salt and a touch of brine. It is also important to note that these anchovies do require some extra work to remove the backbone and tail, but the extra work and time to soak these de-boned anchovies in cold water for 15-20 minutes before using, yields a flavor out of this world and we have actually found they are less salty than the oil packed anchovies.

We recommend that once the can is opened, to keep the remainder of anchovies and salt in an airtight container in the refrigerator where they will keep indefinitely.

This GIANT can of anchovies is an incredible value, but please be aware that they are WHOLE, SALT-PACKED anchovies. They arrived super fast, and they are huge and delicious, but you WILL need to fillet them yourself!! Half the can is salt -- they are VERY salty!! Also, the can is marked "MUST BE REFRIGERATED" but was shipped via standard UPS. I can only hope that it means "Must be refrigerated AFTER OPENING" [emphasis mine]!! :-)

I don't get it. I appreciate what these are supposed to be, but in reality, they aren't any better than the ultra premium packed in oil brands. A lot of work to clean makes these less interesting. Don't get me wrong, they are good anchovies, but not worth the effort to clean when I can get similar that are ready to eat right out of the package.

2.2lbs of anchovies may be over the top, but when they are as good as these, then over the top is the place to be. The difference in taste to regular anchovies & these salted one ones is like the difference of filet mignon to a fast food hamburger...unless you LIKE fast food...
It may seem expensive to buy this many, however, they last indefinitely, and one will usually take the place of a whole can of the grocery store variety.
Yum!

Kind of a pain to descale and clean, but worth it. Best bagna cauda ever! And the can is a nice display item. Took out the top layer of fish, covered the rest with salt and covered the can with foil held with a rubber band.

These anchovies are excellent; nothing like the salty, fishy cousins packed in oil available on a grocers shelf. Instead the taste has depth and character, somewhat like a sardine but with a little more bite. The drawback here is that you must scrape the skin off and "filet" the little fishes, worth the effort in my opinion.

I have purchased salted anchovies in the past that have been light and clean-tasting with bones that could be extracted. In contrast to that, these were on the way out in terms of freshness- very fishy tasting, tons of oil, and almost impossible to separate fish from bones. When I initially popped into the can with my can opener, I was greeted with an explosive spray of oil shooting everywhere!!! After mucking about with bits and pieces once or twice, I ended up chucking the whole can -huge waste of money. There's no way this was going to "last" in terms of edible lifespan, as I am not sure they were right to begin with. Long term "storage" of the remainder was not an issue to be considered.

sure, friends and family will wonder why you have a kilogram (that's 2.2 lbs to you and me) of anchovies in your fridge....but once they taste these anchovies they will understand. Jam packed in salt, reminiscent of an artic expedition's survival fare, the can of choice Recca Mediterranean anchovies is de rigueur for the true anchovy aficionado...pick up a tin today
