Homemade Anchovy Powder

Ground anchovy powder is a pantry staple in my home! It comes in real handy for days where I want to whip up something quick. This is ideal for soups and stews that call for anchovy broth.

All I need to do is add a spoonful of this anchovy powder and it’ll get the job done. It shaves off about 20 minutes of cooking time and it adds a ton of flavor too!

I usually make a big batch and store it in the fridge! They have a really long shelf life when refrigerated.

After the dried anchovies are toasted, they can be eaten whole as a snack! They make great anju 🙂
