Irresistible flavours: Sauce with Essence of Anchovy

If during your stay at the Hotel Margherita of Praiano you fancy tasting the flavour of a typical Amalfi Coast product, our restaurant M’ama! has the right dish for you on its menu: “Spaghetti con Colatura di Alici”, spaghetti dressed in a sauce with essence of anchovy.

We all know spaghetti is a delicacy in itself, however, dressed with Colatura di Alici it becomes a real joy for your palate, an irresistible and unmissable dish if you really want to get in touch with the flavours of our land and its most ancient traditions.

spaghetti colatura alici

The “Colatura”, already famous at the time of the Roman Empire (the Gourmet Apicious always used it in the sumptuous banquets that made him famous), was rediscovered in the middle ages by the monks of the Amalfi Coast, who used to preserve the anchovies in wooden barrels letting their liquids drizzle with the use of salt.

This procedure was then passed on from father to son amongst the fishermen of the Amalfi Coast and, above all, of the maritime village of Cetara, currently the main centre of production of this sauce, which can be used as a delicious dressing for pasta, fish, vegetables, eggs and even in pizza dough.

The “Colatura di Alici” was exposed at the Terra Madre 2016, a huge gastronomic event in Turin that celebrates the work of the Salone Internazionale del Gusto and Slow food, real giants as far as environmentally sustainable and high quality, typically local food is concerned.

However, we now think we’d better get into the kitchen and start cooking spaghetti. Let’s follow this recipe by our chef Giulio Coppola:

 

Gragnano spaghetti with Colatura di Alici of Cetara
with crushed almonds and anchovies

Ingredients for 4 people
400gr of Gragnano Spaghetti
40ml of Colatura of Cetara
100ml of Extra Virgin olive oil
1 stalk of green garlic (or three stalks of garlic)
12 anchovy fillets
80gr of peeled almonds

Preparation
Spread the almonds out on a non-stick oven tray and place the anchovy fillets on top of them; place in the oven at 85 degrees for one hour. Once they are dried, crush them with the help of a rolling pin. Cook the spaghetti in a pot with slightly salted boiling water and in the meantime slice the garlic thinly; sauté the garlic with olive oil in a pan, add a spoonful of the pasta water and take out the spaghetti whilst it is still al dente. Add it to the pan and toss the pan many times in order to aerate the pasta, creating a sort of emulsion between the pasta and the dressing and release more amid. Then add the Colatura Di Cetara and continue tossing, keeping the pan away from the flame. With the help of a ladle and a big fork create a turban of spaghetti and place it at the centre of the dish. Now you just need to complete the dish by adding the crushed almonds and anchovies to make the dish crunchier and tastier. Finish by decorating with a few parsley leaves. The meal is ready, enjoy!

È stato soltanto un sorriso radioso, ed è costato poco darlo, ma come la luce del mattino ha dissipato la notte e ha reso il giorno degno di essere vissuto. [F. Scott Fitzgerald]
Un augurio di un felice nuovo giorno pieno di vita a tutti splendide persone!
E' tempo di risvegliarsi alla grande 💙

The word "end" on the Amalfi Coast could be eliminated from the vocabulary.
The end of the season? It doesn't exist, the beginning of the new season exists. Whether it's autumn, winter, spring or summer, here the sky and the sea never stop meeting in unison.
The end of the sea? It doesn't exist, the more you look at the horizon, the more its line seems to move forward and you can only try to imagine what lies beyond.
This is why until 30th Novembre 2021 here from the Hotel Margherita and the Ristorante M'ama Praiano you can continue to wander with an endless gaze, like us today 💙
