Salt Packed Anchovies

rosario | Nov 28, 2009 12:27 PM

Does anyone know where I can buy salt cured-packed anchovies? I have seen them at Italian grocers in the past - packed in a large tin and one could buy them individually as required. I tried last month at Milano's and was told that the Federal Gov't has (in its usual infinite wisdom) banned import of this product and it is no longer available. Can anyone confirm this - if so, are they available under the table anywhere?

A staple of great Italian sauces, the ubiquitous oil packed anchovies just don't cut it.
