3x Dips w/ Anchovies
The most loved version of this fish is fried. Who can say no to fried anything, right? However, if you can’t find them fresh you are still not at a loss. Canned anchovies are packed with bold flavours and often used in sauces, pastas or even soups.
I’ve used canned anchovies as an inspiration for a snack platter and I’ve come up with 3x dip recipes with anchovies. Get ready for this!

Anchovies Garlic Mayo
This Anchovies Mayo has a salty and garlicky taste. It’s perfect as a dip for crudité, to spread on a sandwich or wrap, or even as a condiment.
Anchovies Herb Butter
Fresh herb butters are delicious to toss through vegetables, bake with fish, melt on your steak or stir through pasta, but they also work oh so well as a spread for your crusty bread on a snack platter.
Anchovies Olive Oil
An additional flavour on your snack platter; plus, easy on the wallet is this anchovies flavoured olive oil dip. I’m a big fan of homemade infused oils and this salty and aromatic olive oil fits perfectly on a snack platter. Just make sure you use a good olive oil.
