- Active Time 20m
- Total Time 20m
The use of the orange in cooking is not new. In Sicilian popular tradition oranges are often served as a salad with oil and salt, to accompany a main course. This dish from Calabria brings together anchovies and oranges in a most interesting way.
- 6 1/2 ounces anchovies packed in salt
- Olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 2 oranges, peeled, pith removed, diced
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup orange liqueur
- 1 pound spaghetti
- 1 bunch mint, chopped
Wash the anchovies well to remove all the salt, open them up and take out the backbones. Cut them into small pieces.
Warm a skillet and add the oil and garlic.
Let the garlic fry gently for a moment, and then add the anchovies and work them into the oil with a fork, using the tip of the prongs, to achieve a creamy consistency.
Now add the oranges, breadcrumbs and orange liqueur. Taste, adding salt if necessary.
Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in plenty of boiling salted water until al dente; drain. Dress with the sauce and serve sprinkled with mint.
