I have a question about the recipe "Herbed ricotta and anchovy crostini" from Sagegreen. Drain the anchovies or mash them up with the oil from the tin?

I believe Sagegreen means just the fillets, without the oil in the tin.

This is not my recipe but skip the tinned stuff. It's the reason why there are so many anchovy haters---they are missing the good stuff. The tins are usually from Morocco and the contents are what I refer to as "pizza anchovies". Buy good, flat ones in a jar preferably from Spain or Italy.
