Anchovy Dressing

So in my last post I promised to blog about anchovy dressing.  This dressing goes really well with the tray baked cod, but you could have it with plain cod, red mullet, seabass, haddock etc.  Its also really nice drizzled over new potatoes.  It is strongly flavoured so you don't need to put loads of it over your food.  The recipe was adapted by my mum from a Gordon Ramsay recipe.

To make the dressing you'll need:
  • 50g can anchovy fillets (drained)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 generous tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 100ml olive oil
Gordon's original recipe also used 1tsp chopped tarragon but my mam has never used it as she didn't have any in when she first made this. 

Its really simple to make the dressing and its ready in a matter of minutes.

Add the ingredients into a blender and whiz until blended...told you it was simple!

It doesn't look the prettiest dressing but it tastes great with your fish and potatoes.



  1. Umm we'll see hehe thanks for the recipes

    Keep them coming

    Cheers A

  2. I'm not a big fan of anchovy, but the recipe is really simple, like you noted. It's amazing what can come out of just a few ingredients:)

  3. Hi there Jayne!

    My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.

    I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site recently and was pretty impressed. I've added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: and would also like to add you to my blogroll.

    If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added (foodie [at] I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!

    As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn't well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.

    Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I've subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.

    Warm regards,

    P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:

  4. Yeah i realise that anchovies aren't going to be everyone's cup of tea, I only really started eating them a year ago and even when my mam knocked this up I wasnt keen on the idea but then i tried it and was hooked.

    Steve - I'll check out your blog, thanks
