Colatura di Alici from IASA
Discovered this tasty meat flavor enhancer sauce the very first time I shopped at Market Hall and it is the bomb! Just a drop or two on finished meats really adds such depth of flavor. Try it! Don't be afraid of the anchovies, there not visible. Haha.
An essential ingredient when making pasta with clam sauce or (if you are well heeled) bottarga. A drop or two will take your Bloody Mary to the next level! The colatura is so intense that a small bottle will last for months.
Initially I thought of this as a specialized product but then realized, it's salty, it's umami, its a flavor enhancer. Use this instead of soy sauce, to create 'vegetarian' beef broth, to enhance soups, stews, braises, sauces. It's a super versatile product.
Some folks love anchovies, some folks hate 'em. If you love anchovies, you gotta have this. Toss a bit of colatura in a bowl of spaghetti, drizzle with some very fresh and fruity olive oil - olio nuovo does the trick - and sprinkle with freshly ground mixed peppercorns and a squeeze of lemon. Pour a glass of chilled Soave. Die and go to heaven.
