Why & How To Use Anchovy Paste In Spag Bol

Anchovy paste, a lesser-known secret weapon in the culinary arsenal, adds an extraordinary depth of flavour to your spag bol (Spaghetti Bolognese). This umami-rich paste, derived from salted anchovies, imparts a savoury richness that elevates your dish from ordinary to extraordinary.

To harness its potential, simply heat a small amount of olive oil in a pan and saut√© a teaspoon or two of anchovy paste until it melts into the oil, creating a flavourful base. Then, add your minced meat and proceed with your bolognese sauce preparation. The anchovy paste’s essence will integrate seamlessly, providing a tantalising complexity that deepens the overall taste profile.

As your sauce simmers, the anchovy’s savoury notes will meld harmoniously with the tomatoes, herbs, and meat, enhancing each ingredient’s natural flavours. Fear not, for the paste doesn’t impose an overt fishiness but rather a profound savoury foundation that delights the palate.

Incorporating anchovy paste into your spag bol transforms the familiar into the unforgettable. Its role as a flavour enhancer enhances the umami richness of your bolognese, taking your dish on a journey from good to exceptional, all with just a small dollop of this remarkable ingredient.
