You can read my Instructable on how to clean and preserve anchovies. Stop at salting them. Once they have been "cooked" in the salt, you can smoke them.

Step 1: Dry Anchovies and Prepare Wood

Lay the salted anchovies out to dry on a rack. Soak two handfuls of applewood or cedar chips in water. Spread the damp chips in the bottom of a pan.

Step 2: Smoke Anchovies

Lay the rack of anchovies over them and cover them with foil. Put them on a stove top and turn the heat on low. Let them smoke until tender.

Step 3: Mix With Unsalted Butter

Mix in a 2:1 ratio unsalted butter to smoked anchovies. Then mix them until smooth.

Step 4: Serve

This butter is great served with crusty bread, or toss it in pasta and grate lemon zest over it.

<p>This is great - thanks for sharing... But I want the detailed recipe for that bread! I've tried so many variations but have not been able to achieve the crisp crust and the obviously chewy but almost non-existent crumb (because the holes are so large).</p><p>Stones, dough conditioners, hard flour, additional gluten, quick-and-hot or lower-and-slower, weighing ingredients, and on and on... Not to hijack the thread - but can you provide any insight on the bread?</p><p>Thanks!</p>
<p>So tasty sounding! Thanks for sharing!</p>
