When most people think of anchovies, they think of long, silver or brick-colored strips of salty, tiny fish spread out over a pizza or Caesar salad. But they would also be surprised to learn that anchovies work their way into a number of dishes in the same way you would use a spice or seasoning, not as a topping. Because anchovies break down when heated, they can easily be incorporated into a number of sauces and dips, such as Louisiana remoulade sauce, Italian bagna cauda or the kitchen staple of Worcestershire sauce. Used in this manner, anchovies offer a boost of flavor, without adding a fishy undertone.

Mojama is a Spanish delicacy consisting of filleted salt-cured tuna. The word mojama comes from the Arabic musama (dry), but its origins are Phoenician, specifically from Gdr (Gadir, Cádiz today), the first Phoenician settlement in the Western Mediterranean Sea. The Phoenicians had learned to dry tuna in sea salt to make it appropriate for trade. Mojama is made using the loins of the Yellow Fin tuna by curing them in salt for two days. The salt is then removed, the loins are washed and then laid out to dry in the sun and the breeze (according to the traditional method) for fifteen to twenty days.
