Anchovies with Green Chili

 anchovies with green chili
A new anchovies dish that we experimented with for Thanksgiving dinner party. It received a rave review from our guests. The right amount of chili and the sweetness on the tip of your tongue will definitely make you dance. Well, not literally, you know what I meant. Definitely the easiest dish of the day.

    Jun,
    You stated “sugar” in the cooking method, but forgot to mention it in the ingredients list…. How much sugar did you use?
    I also assume that you used the salted anchovies… ’cause I’ve seen some anchovies here that aren’t salted…just dried. Please advise. Thank you.
