Question about salt packed anchovies

Samin's recipe calls for salt packed anchovies. I'm at the store now, all are olive oil and salt packed. Will that be ok? Not as good?

I usually buy anchovie paste but I want to be a big girl and use the real thing.

Funny! I was the same way until this site made me a convert. Go for it and you will taste a great difference. I now use them quite often cooked into dishes and they keep forever in the refrigerator.

You will have more luck in finding salt-packed anchoives (and capers, for that matter) in an Italian deli or grocery. If available and you have the time, wait to get them there.
Not seeing the recipe, I can only guess that it will be good but different. Unless somewhere (headnote, directions?) says the salt-packed fish are important.

SLC, they do skeeve me out but I need to get over it. If I'm going to eat something I should be able to deal with it.
