White anchovy dakos


You'll need

4 thick slices sourdough bread, cut into thirds 2 vine-ripened tomatoes, coarsely chopped 12 white anchovy fillets To serve: extra-virgin olive oil and lemon wedges   Pickled fennel 1 fennel bulb, shaved on a mandolin 150 ml white wine vinegar 150 ml extra-virgin olive oil 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced 1 tbsp each fennel seeds and coriander seeds, dry-roasted ¼ cup each (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley and coriander, coarsely chopped   Preserved lemon mayonnaise 2 egg yolks 1 tsp Dijon mustard 1 tbsp lemon juice 100 ml each olive oil and vegetable oil 20 gm preserved lemons, rinsed, flesh discarded, rind finely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Place bread in a single layer on a tray in a warm place until it starts to dry out (overnight).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for pickled fennel, combine fennel, vinegar, oil, garlic and dry-roasted spices in a non-reactive container, season to taste and refrigerate overnight for flavours to develop. Just before serving, drain fennel and toss through parsley and coriander.
  • 03
  • For preserved lemon mayonnaise, whisk yolks, mustard and lemon juice in a bowl until pale (2-3 minutes). Whisking continuously, add oil in a thin steady stream until thick and incorporated then whisk in preserved lemon, season to taste and refrigerate until required.
  • 04
  • Spread bread with preserved lemon mayonnaise, top with tomato, pickled fennel and anchovies, drizzle with oil, season to taste and serve with lemon wedges.
This recipe is from the January 2013 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
