  • 200 ml white wine vinegar
  • 200 ml extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 spoon
  • 2 bowls
  • cling film
  • 1 bowl filled with water
  • 1 slotted spoon

Step 2: Clean the anchovies

Cut off the head, open the fish up and remove the spine. Repeat with all the anchovies.

Step 3: Mix the salt with the herbs

Add the chopped thyme and rosemary to the coarse salt and mix together thoroughly.

Step 4: Layer the anchovies and salt in bowl

Step 5: Cover and refrigerate

Cover the bowl with cling film and refrigerate for three hours.
