Anchovy Paste

Anchovy paste usually comes in a tube and is usually very salty, so you won't need too much anchovy paste to flavor your Caesar salad.

And if you have the time, it would be better to just make your own anchovy paste - it's very easy.

Most stores will carry a decent brand of anchovies to make an anchovy paste.

Look for anchovies packed in real olive oil.

It is also best to buy your anchovies packed in a jar to avoid metal contamination or a metal like taste.

This tiny fish is found all over the Mediterranean and at the Pacific Coast of the United States.

By the way, anchovies are not the same as sardines.

This cold water fish is a good source of protein, calcium, omega 3 fatty acids, iron, and selenium.

How to Make Anchovy Paste

To make anchovy paste - remove anchovies from container and put into a small blender.

Then add a little good quality olive oil - blend anchovies with organic olive oil to make a paste.

Then add in your desired seasonings - if any.

You can use a little food processor or a mortar and pestle to do this job.

  1. First, soak your mustard seeds in beer, wine, or vinegar overnight and then you can add a sweetener, herbs, or spices.
