  2. Spring Vegetable Tartine with White Anchovies – Food Wishes and Little Fishes

    Fri, 4 Mar 2016

    It’s not unusual for me to borrow ideas from the various restaurants I visit, but they’re normally tweaked, altered, or otherwise adapted. This time, however, I just blatantly stole this spring vegetable tartine with white anchovies, as it. Why mess with perfection? Yes, this spring vegetable tartine, featuring the awesomeness that is the white anchovy, was lifted almost verbatim from SHED , which is my current, “favorite place to eat.” If you’re ever anywhere near Healdsburg, CA (like within 500 miles), you simply must visit this amazing store/café/charcuterie/restaurant hybrid. Now that I’ve offset some of my guilt for stealing this recipe with such a glowing recommendation, I can move on to this intensely tasty tartine. This would be incredibly delicious with just the aioli and vegetables, but when you add the “boquerones,” this goes from great sandwich, to memorable experience. Even if you think you hate anchovies, which you really don’t, you may still love these, since they are so completely different. They are very mild in flavor, but still extremely savory. I was going to say they're a little bit like pickled herring, but that probably won’t help. Regardless, I hope you give this spring vegetable tartine a try very soon. Enjoy!   Ingredients for 4 generous servings: For the aioli: 1 or 2 garlic cloves, sliced 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 3/4 cup mayonnaise 1 teaspoon lemon zest 1 tablespoon lemon juice pinch of cayenne The rest: 4 large thick slices day-old French bread, toasted 16 white anchovy fillets (aka boquerones) * 2 cups thinly peeled, sliced, or shredded fresh vegetables, moistened with a splash of lemon juice, and drizzle of olive oil. edible flowers, optional * Carrots, fennel root, radishes, celery root, asparagus, artichoke hearts, peppers, endive , micro greens, and any/all kinds of sprouts would work beautifully here.
