Anchovie extract by El Capricho is one of our favorite seasonings. Keep it on hand for a dash of intense umami flavor in any dish! Thick and oily, this lovely amber sauce is a great seasoning for meat and makes an excellent substitute for Asian fish sauce or Roman garum.
Using traditional methods, El Capricho begins the creation of its SalMŭria with the finest European anchovies. Caught off the coast of Spain in the Cantabrian Sea, these little fish are prized for their delectable flavor. Mixed with nothing but sea salt the anchovies are aged for 12 to 18 months, at which point the delicious extract is created. Additive-free, El Capricho’s anchovy extract is made of simple high-quality ingredients, that guarantee a delicious end product every time. With only a limited amount produced every year, this highly coveted extract sells quickly, so be sure to get a bottle of your own before they’re all gone!
Truly delicious, anchovy oil can be used for so many culinary applications. Use it as an oil to cook with as they do in many Asian countries. Combined with wine, vinegar, oil, or pepper, it serves as an excellent seasoning for other foods like vegetables, salads, rice, soups, and broth. In Italian cuisine, it is mainly used as a dressing for pasta sauteed with garlic, oil, and chilis. Though the possibilities are endless, we encourage you to use your oil sparingly, as it packs intense flavor and aroma that can easily overpower a dish. Because a little goes a long way, this delicate bottle will last for months! Begin seasoning your food like a pro and explore the entire range of delicious culinary possibilities with anchovy oil!
