This meal is very old, probably from Greek and Roman times 2000 years ago. We in Croatia are very lucky because we can buy salted anchovies from direct producers who make these salted anchovies the same way old Romans did. And I must say, these home made salted anchovies are much, much better than grocery-stores one. Beside anchovy we also salt “srdela” a.k.a. sardine. Srdela is “heavier” to eat, and more cleaning work. It is very salty meal and a person should not eat more than three salted anchovies per day (that’s 6 fillets). This is how we prepare this meal in Dalmatia.
