    Quick! Where is the anchovy paste??

    Ok - DH is at the store and needs to locate it. I've never bought it before, so I'm no help. Where does your grocery store stock anchovy paste??

    Thanks!

    I've had the same problem. I finally located it by the fresh fish counter. It was stocked next to the frozen crab meat etc.

    I bought 2 tubes of it a while ago and it seems like I found it near the canned tuna at one store.

    In my specialty store, it's near the canned sardines and (duh) anchovies. I don't remember seeing it in one of my supermarkets, but in the other, I think I remember seeing it with the other canned fish.

    Cheers,

    I can find them in the dairy department - refrigerated. With the jars of pickled herring.

    Hi Leigh,

    Can you share the recipe that you are making? I have some anchovy paste in my cabinet and I'd like to use it.

    I think I found it near the canned fish last time I looked for it. After reading through the replies, it looks like different stores put it in different places. My big question is, what is it with men.... I would have asked a store employee where to find it.

    Yes, please share. Like Val, I have a tube I want to use too!

    Val, here's what I bought anchovy paste for:

    Twice Baked Potatoes Caesar

    3 small baking potatoes (about 6 ozs each)
    2 Tablespoons margarine or butter
    1 small garlic clove, crushed with press
    1/2 cup sour cream
    4 anchovy fillets, minced or 1 teaspoon anchovy paste
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon grated fresh lemon peel
    1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
    1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

    Preheat oven to 450. With fork, pierce potatoes on oven rack and bake 35 minutes or until fork tender.
    Cut each potato lenghtwise in half. With a spoon, carefully scoop out potatoes, placing flesh in medium bowl and leaving potato-skin shells intact.
    In small sacuepan, melt margarine over medium heat. Add garlic and cook 15 seconds.
    With potato masher, mash potatoes with margarine mixture and all remaining ingredients except 2 Tablespoons Parmesan. Spoon mixture into 4 reserved potato-skin shells, mounding slightly. (If you like, cover and refrigerate remaining 2 shells for use another day.)
    Place potatoes in shallow baking pan, sprinkle with remaining Parmesan.
    Return potatoes to oven and bake about 15 minutes or until hot on the inside and golden on top.

    Whoops! Just noticed all the replies to this one! Thanks everyone DH left the store before I could tell him all the possible locations, so we did without. I'll have to hunt it down the next time I go. I wish these things were more standardized. The barley in our store is by the soup - it took me 4 trips to find it, and I asked 3 different employees.

    We made the Caesar Salad with Spicy Croutons from the Complete cookbook. Very good, even without the anchovy paste. I used the lowfat Hellmans instead of fat free since that's what I had. I also had to thin out the dressing a little with some skim milk, since I don't like gloppy dressing.

    Hmm, you mean like a couple of weeks ago when I wanted a can of chickpeas and, like a fool, looked up and down the aisle labled "Rice, Beans, Pasta". No, they were with the condiments and chili!
    Or when, shortly after joining the BB, I decided to make Jewel's Garlicky Green Beans and attempted to hunt down chicken boullion granules in about five different stores - no luck. Found them a month later - only by coincidence - in the "ethnic foods" aisle. Chicken boullion??
