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.
