Cantabrian anchovies and Sicilian fennel

Le alici del Cantabrico e il finocchietto siciliano

For our Segreti di Sicilia anchovy sauce with fennel we choose Mediterranean anchovies, a typical blue fish widely used in traditional Sicilian recipes. Anchovies are rich in Omega3 (up to 11 grams per 100 of product). These fats play a very important role against the accumulation of cholesterol in the blood and therefore in the prevention of arterial hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. Wild fennel, an aromatic herb that grows spontaneously in many areas of Sicily, in addition to being very fragrant, has precious carminative (i.e., absorbs and eliminates gas from the intestine), antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
