Grilled Bread with Anchovy Butter

November 18, 2009 | Breads

I’ve had this photo waiting in my saved food photo file for months, but for some reason keep forgetting to share it with you. I saw this on an episode of Bobby Flay’s Grill It! where he and his guest were showing different ways to do andouille sausage on the grill. His recipe was for a mixed grill dish that was enhanced at the end by adding some anchovy butter to it and served along with some grilled bread slathered with more of the anchovy butter.If you think you hate anchovies, you probably do. But eating a whole anchovy is quite different than using anchovies to provide a background flavor that’s briny – tasting of the sea and salty. I hate anchovies whole, but I loved them in this recipe. The grilled bread with anchovy butter goes perfectly with a nice bouillabaisse, a gumbo, a mixed seafood paella, or grilled meats. Give it a try – if your dinner guests are like mine they won’t even know the secret ingredient!
