A delicious, creamy sauce, perfect for meat or vegetables.



  1. Wash anchovies in vinegar, bone and pound using a mortar and pestle with fennel and a pinch of cinnamon.
  2. Mix in parsley and marjoram, a squeeze of lemon juice, flour, cream, and the bones of the fish for which you will use this sauce.
  3. Pass through a sieve, add garlic, and boil.

Tips, tricks, and variationsEdit

If the fish you are using is cooked in the oven, add a little of the liquor in which it has been cooked to the sauce. Take out the garlic before serving. Instead of anchovies you may use caviar, pickled tunny, or any other pickled fish.
