...Anchovies are a classification of small, oily salt-water fish of the Engraulidae family. Variations of this fish are used around the world. A common method for preserving anchovies is to gut them and brine them, then pack them in oil to be sold. Vinegar is another method used for preserving anchovies. Though less common, these little fish are also prepared raw with no preserving and have a much milder fishy taste, yet pack a ton of flavor.
...Salt is a mineral composed mostly of sodium chloride. It is the main flavoring used in food and is naturally occurring in certain foods, such as cheese, beets, meat and celery, plus many others. Salt is white and has finer granules than sugar. Many commercial salts include iodide, while others exclude it. Most salts are white, while some are naturally pale pink with minerals. Salt brings out the flavor of something and can create a tangy mouthfeel, if used in excess.
