Anchovies In Green Sauce

Anchovies In Green Sauce


  • 250 g (1/2 lb) anchovies, cleaned weight (salted ones are best for taste, but those packed in olive oil will work as well)
  • 170 g (1/3) parsley leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp. capers (those packed in salt are best, those in brine will work as well)
  • several small pickles
  • several fresh green chiles*
  • olive oil


  1. De-salt and clean the anchovies and let drain (just drain if packed in oil).

  2. De-salt and drain the capers (just drain if packed in brine).

  3. Finely chop all the vegies, using enough olive oil as necessary.

  4. Layer the green sauce and anchovies in a container, and place in the fridge.

  5. Best after a minimum of several weeks, will keep until eaten.

  6. Eat on fresh bread, use on pizza, etc.

* (I use Serranos in summer, Rocotos when I made this batch, colored chiles work as well, I've had good results with habs, too.)
