I have always wanted to try the salted filets. Some say they are better; never had a source though. I will be keeping an eye out. Thanks...

I second Trader Joe's if you have one near you. I went for the first time a few weeks ago and fell in love with the place.

These are the best I've found. Packed in salt, I've been buying them for years, my little daughter just wouldn't eat Spaghetti without them

MR. These anchovies are packed in salt so I remove them from a jar, rinse salt off with water and soak them in shallow milk bath for 15--20 minutes. The Filet the filets to remove backbone, mince.

1.) Boil pasta in salted water. Al dente, drain but save two cups of pasta water.
2.) In same pan, add a good glog of olive oil, a pinch of Italian red pepper flakes, some minced garlic and minced anchovie. Saute on medium for 2 to 3 minutes until it becomes a paste.
3.) add 1/2 cup dry white (dry vermouth), reduce to syrup
4.) Add maranara (or crushed tomatoes), cook into anchovie paste, reduce a bit.
5.) Add drained pasta to red sauce, add 1 cup of pasta water. Cook until tomato sauce coats pasta. Serve wth lots of fresh grated parma and maybe a little more olive oil.

Thanks Mucho, we'll give it a try tomorrow with her sister. Maybe using more tomato the way you are will do the trick. At least I know if she won't eat it, I will!

Great, I always wondered which ones to get and never thought of the salted kind. Now to find some good salted capers next... Unfortunately, Amazon does not ship food to Hawaii, so I am stuck with Wholefoods or need to re-route packages througha middle man.
