Argentine anchovy

 

  • Extra virgin olive oil

  • 10 cherry tomatoes

  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and halved

  • ¼ bunch of thyme

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • ½ loaf of ciabatta (or your favourite bread)

  • ½ bunch of basil, leaves only, shredded

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

Turn down the heat, add the garlic and thyme, and, with the lid on, leave the tomatoes to soften for 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Slice the ciabatta and toast the bread in a toaster or toaster oven.

4. Top the warm bread with the confit tomatoes and discard the garlic and thyme. Divide the anchovy fillets between the slices, sprinkle with the basil leaves, and drizzle with olive oil to taste.
