Mention anchovies to me and I cringe. In a salad or on a pizza, no way!! But on a recent trip to Italy a friend convinced me to try fresh, marinated anchovies. I wasn't sure but agreed to be brave and give it a try. Boy, was I surprised. They tasted nothing like their canned cousins. Marinated in olive oil, lemon juice and dressed with herbs they were good. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks.
