IASA Anchovy Paste Tube $8.95

Retired naval captain Francesco di Mauro founded Ittica Alimentare Salerno (IASA) to preserve the fresh seafood caught by local fisherman near Cetara, a quaint village perched on Italy’s Amalfi Coast.

​Specializing in tuna and anchovies, IASA is one of the few producers left that hand-cleans each fish before layering them in drums, curing with salt and letting their flavor deepen.

Not sure how you’d use it?

We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.


Anchovy lovers might choose to smear this straight onto toast, but we like to incorporate this whenever we want a hit of umami in pasta sauces for pasta dishes like Spaghetti Puttanesca or soups or meat and fish braises of any sort. It adds savory depth to spice rubs much like miso would, try replacing the miso with the anchovy paste in our Pan-Seared Miso-Marinated Skirt Steak, and also lends itself well to classics like Caesar dressing and Bagna Cauda with Charred broccoli (an Italian fondue-like dish).
