I'm not sure ServSafe wise, but I've kept both for months in the fridge after opening them.

anchovie paste will keep a long time if the tube is capped and kept in the fridge. KNock off the fist bit out when using next as it may be dry. Achovies in oil or salt will keep once opened if kept sealed and cool in the fridge for quite some time also. Possibly up to a month.

Try fish sauce

I used to have the same problem.

Now I just buy a quart oforiental fish sauce (Nuc mam, nam pla, etc - 3 Crabs is a good brand) Use a teaspoon, or so, in your dish-- you won't know it's there, but you'll know when it isn't.

Lasts for years without refrigeration.

Just don't smell it first, or you won't use it

i use both anchovy paste and the 3 crabs brand of fish sauce.

i'm often asked about a certain, underlying tone when i cook my swiss chard, but that's what it is... about a teaspoon of good anchovy paste.

bacon and olive oil in a cold pan... render out the fat.
remove the bacon and reserve
saute some garlic puree (homemade) and when you can REALLY smell the garlic, add-in the anchovy paste and stir for about 20 seconds.
add chicken broth and chard stems and cook for 15 min.
reduce heat and add chard leaves til they wilt.
