Tomato Canapes with Anchovies



Boost your heart health with super Omega from fresh Anchovies.

You need:

  • 500 grams of fresh anchovies.
  • 3 large tomatoes, cut into thick rings.
  • Chopped Coriander or Basil.
  • Chopped Garlic cloves.
  • One chopped green chilly.
  • Two tablespoons of Olive oil.

It’s best to remove the bones from the anchovies. After washing them, leave them in the freezer for about twenty minutes. Remove the bones by simply peeling them out. It’s very easy and you may only need to make a tiny snip at the tail end. Most fishes will simply part ways with the middle bone without much resistance.

Heat olive oil, lightly fry the garlic and green chilly. Spread out the tomatoes slices without stacking them on top of each other. Let them cook till they have softened. Do not add any salt. Flip the tomato slices. Spread out the fish on top of the tomatoes. Sprinkle chopped coriander leaves. Cook on low heat. The color of the fish will rapidly start changing into opaque white. It may take no more than 10 mins for the fish to be cooked. Carefully move the tomatoes to one side and the fish to the other. Use high heat to dry it up. This will take no more than 2-3 minutes.
