500 g fresh anchovies
flour for breading
pepper to taste
salt to taste
evo oil for frying
Clean the anchovies with a knife. With kitchen scissors remove the head, cut along the belly, open them like a book, remove the entrails and bones. All without dividing the two halves of the fish.
Wash them and let them drain in a colander. In a bowl, beat the eggs and add salt and pepper. Heat the oil. Dab the anchovies individually with paper towels, then roll them in flour and egg.
Soak in the hot oil, turning them halfway. Arrange the breaded fried anchovies on paper towels to remove the oil in excess. Serve it hot.
