Boquerones (Fresh Anchovies)

Cooked these for lunch today. It worked really well and was very light. A quarter of a kilo cost the princely sum of 1 Euro… I made a simple batter, fried them in olive oil and added a squeeze of lime. Not sure how easy they are to get hold of in England or America but here in Spain they’re everywhere. Bought these from the brand new market on Calle de Barceló.


for the batter

  • 75 grams flour
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 100 ml milk

other ingredients

  • 1/4 kilo of fresh boquerones
  • lime


Mix all of the ingredients of the batter in a bowl. Wash the the fish thoroughly in water. Then dip the fish into the batter and straight in to very hot olive oil for a couple of minutes until the batter browns nicely. Serve with bread and a squeeze of lime.
