Great recipe. I only used 8 garlic cloves and 4 anchovy filets and it made plenty of paste and a strong enough flavour for my family, it did 2 turkish breads and about half is still left over. I took some out before adding the anchovy as I had some vegetarians and some people who don't like seafood. I let it sit in the fridge overnight so I had less to do on the day, and I didn't fry the garlic to put on top either. Yum yum!
