Advantages Adds a mysterious flavour to your food.
Disadvantages Made in a factory that uses nut ingredients.
I discovered this Anchovy Sauce from Geo Watkins the same time as the Mushroom Ketchup in Sainsburys although this is slightly more expensive at £1.35 for a 170ml (6fl oz) bottle. It is also now available from Tesco.
I decided to buy this purely to add to my homemade fish pies, but have since discovered it is a useful addition to a number of other recipes as well.
I have found that it is also useful to add a very small amount to prawn cocktails and homemade fish cakes.
It can also be used straight from the bottle on to foods such as Pizza, fried fish, steak, chicken and scrambled eggs, but using it this way somehow doesn't appeal to me, as its flavour is quite strong and also very salty.( I know this because I dipped my finger in the bottle to see what it tasted like). But I will no doubt try using it this way, as I am of the opinion "One shouldn't knock what one hasn't tried" (unless of course there is an allergy issue involved)
Although this has a thicker texture than Worcester sauce the bottle has no plastic stopper to regulate the flow, so I would certainly advise you measure your amounts carefully using a spoon, rather than just adding it straight to your food direct from the bottle, thereby avoiding adding too much and spoiling the dish.The ingredients in this are pretty much what you'd expect for this type of sauce and include Anchovies (obviously), salt, acetic acid, xanthan gum, stabiliser and spices.
