Fresh anchovies are an oily fish that look and taste similar to sardines. Our fillets of Cetara anchovies from the Delfino Battista family on the Amalfi coast are preserved in sunflower oil and are a healthy ingredient for any dish.
Many recipes use anchovies for a punch of flavour where the anchovies are neither recognisable visually nor by the taste buds. Anchovies, much loved by Italians from north to south are often that secret ingredient that you just can't put your finger on!
Use them in numerous sauces, salads, in pasta or to create a delicious antipasto.
Our producer - Delfino Battista
Just after the war, Pasquale Battista opened a small food laboratory in Cetara, a small fishing village on the Amalfi coast, where he worked with passion and pride up to the 1990s, mainly preserving anchovies. The traditional link between the seaside village of Cetara and preserving anchovies dates back to ancient times and is still going strong thanks to Pasquale's children who carry on the tradition using the same family recipe.
Cetara has always been an area of fishermen; it's not by chance that its name derives from the Latin cetaria, or tonnara, used to fish tuna, or from cetari, the vendors of large fish. It is known today all over the world for its anchovies packed in salt and its Colatura di alici, which is the result of the fermentation of anchovies marinating in salt and water in earthenware pots.
All Delfino Battista products are chemical and additive free, so that quality and flavour are kept intact. Nothing has changed over the years.
