Tradition of Anchovies in Olive Oil
Among the first Italian salting producers to come to Santoña, one name must stand out: Giovanni Vella Scaliota. Vella had arrived in Santoña sent by the prestigious Neapolitan firm Angelo Parodi, dedicating himself to the salatori profession (saladores). His merit was to invent the fillets of anchovies in oil, The salted anchovy had to be cleaned at the time of consumption (as it is still done now) and once prepared, take it natural or with a little butter to soften its salty taste like it used to be served in Italy.
Signore Vella, began to be obsessed with the idea of carrying out these tasks in the factory and canning the anchovy to sell it to the consumer directly, for this he began to carry out the entire process in the factory: cleaning the salting and then forming two strips or fillets, removing the central spine and canning the strips in cans, using melted butter as a topping.
The price of butter was too expensive, so it was replaced by olive oil, giving rise to the anchovies that we all know.
How to taste Anchovies in Olive Oil?
When the salt and oil are cold they tend to solidify, and that is why you have to remove the can from the refrigerator about 20 minutes before so that it reaches room temperature and dissolves, and you can enjoy all the flavor and the quality of the anchovies.
