Fried anchovies

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 08, 2012 at 3:56 PM

I discovered a product called "crunchy anchovies" at my local Asian grocery. They small anchovies, fried in palm oil. O Bly other ingredients are salt, sugar and chili oil. Freakin' tasty!! Carb content is low, high in protein (snack equivalentlent of Jerky, but much less expensive).

I want to know if they are still high in omega 3 since they are fried?

Chili oil is more a condiment than anything. Figure any dose of undesirable oils is minimal. Or maybe I'm just a wimp. :P

Palm oil is more than 90% saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids

Might also be partially hydrogenated, even if it says it's not.

Chili oil is mostly soy oil

OMG - that sounds crazy delicious! Were they breaded or just fried. I sometimes "bread" things in almond meal. I'm wondering how the flavor of coconut oil would be with the anchovies. It just could work. I think I'm going to have to experiment!

I found the anchovies plain, unfried, simply dried. I suppose you could do the same and then fry them yourself in the oil of your choosing.

Quite a lot of omega 6 in palm oil i think, plus the sugar is bad but overall it sounds lush so if you're not eating that much and you like it then go for it!
