Anchovies. You either hate them or love them, right? There's so much to love about well-prepared anchovies with a strong flavor and aroma of fish, but sadly, it gets a lot of bad publicity. Due to the processing and improper way of preparing, most anchovies on the market have an unpleasant smell and overly sour flavor, which makes this fish intensely loathed not only as fish but also as a topping. You might also be the one who strongly dislikes this intense, fishy, and salty fish, but today, we are going to show you why you should give them a second chance!
