Smoked anchovies are anchovies that have been brined, rather than salted, then cold smoked whole before being filleted and tinned, in olive oil usually. This process gives the anchovies a subtle smoky flavour.
Tinned smoked anchovies are available all year round from most major supermarkets.
Before opening, store the tin in the fridge. Once opened, keep them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days.
Serve cold on toast with some whole roasted tomatoes or warm through, in their oil, in a small saucepan and stir through pasta with lemon and chopped parsley.
