Anchovies are very salty. And very tasty. They are also quite expensive. In the Philippines, they are commonly used as a pizza topping and in pasta dishes.

When cooking with anchovies, remember that its salt will be absorbed by the other ingredients it is mixed with. So, go easy on the salt. If you’re using the spicy variety, go easy on the pepper too. It would be wiser to serve your anchovies omelet with the salt and pepper shakers on the dinner table. You can always add more.

Ingredients :

4 anchovy fillets
1-200 g. can of sweet peeled pimientoes
3 tomatoes
2 onions
1 tbsp. of minced garlic
4 eggs
4 slices of soft cheese
2 tbsp. of olive oil
salt and pepper
