Mark Hix’s Beetroot salad with smoked anchovies


Marks says: “Smoked anchovies are quite rare, quite delicious and very expensive. The Narden brand from Spain is sold by Brindisa in Borough Market, London SE1, or the shop in Exmouth Market, London EC1 (020-7407 1036, and other delis such as Rick Stein's in Padstow. They come in a can and have a short shelf-life, but taste as if freshly smoked. If you are struggling to find them, this recipe will work with good-quality canned or marinated anchovies but of course you won't get the smoky quality. You could also try smoked mackerel or eel.”
