Spanish Fly Olives, Almonds and Anchovies

December 2, 2013

Author Notes: This is an hors d’oeuvre I came up with on short notice for a small group of friends before dinner. The ingredients are simple and you can plate it in two minutes. The key ingredient would be boquerones, white, pickled anchovies. Don’t even think about subbing cheap “pizza” anchovies. Be careful, as this also works as an aphrodisiac.pierino
