Anchovies on toast with tomato

Pair with: Amontillado


Cooking time: 15 min

Amontillado contains low acid levels and so it is the perfect complement for any dish that contains tomato, on the other hand the salinity of the anchovy combines perfectly with the dry and salty flavors of the Amontillado.



Anchovies on toast with tomato

Crush the tomato together with garlic, salt and a drizzle of good quality virgin olive oil. Toast the bread and lavishly spread the tomato mix on top. 

Finally, place two anchovies on top and voilá!
