brown garlic in olive oil, finely chop anchovies and add to garlic, dump in 2 large cans of crushed tomatoes, add a cup of red wine, a few sprigs of thyme, then simmer. when the sauce has reduced a bit, put in some cleaned shrimp, lump crabmeat, and a filet of cod or another firm white fish. cover and simmer 5 minutes more or until the thickest fish is cooked thru, but don't over do it. serve over angelhair pasta.

you're welcome luvs. put the crabmeat in just before you serve it. it's probaably already cooked, so it just needs to re-heat. if put in too early, it'll fall apart. also, my fav type of canned tomatoes is either muir glen organic or cento brand. if you don't want to cook down the tomatoes, you can just use a pre-made plain marinara sauce. also, experiment with herbs, see which ones you like. thyme, oregano, basil, savory, marjoram, sage, fennel, rosemary are all good in this dish, but should be used sparingly. don't let the herbs steal the show from the fish...

i made it, buckytom! yum! :D
i added mussels, sage, italian seasoning (all out of oregano, grumble, grumble :? ) and tarragon.
i made a really little batch, just enough to fit into my mini all clad pan, cause i was only cooking for me, so i underdid the anchovies. and i underestimated on the salt. but it was still good.
thanks!

i'm glad you liked it luvs. throw in a little hot pepper and voila, you've got fra diavolo. good with stronger flavored fish like bluefish.

the anchovies are kinda funny. if you chop them up, they melt into the sauce giving it a nice seafood flavor. you'd think they'd be too strong but they disappear.

mmm, i'm on a spicy and salty foods kick, so that sounds really good.
i used cod in mine. i can see a lot of different types of fish working in this.

and jennyema!!! you're brave! i can eat like a quarter of an anchovy and the caper in the center of it plain and that's about it, lol.

I solved the problem by using anchovy paste. I use what I need for caesar dressing and cap it and store in the fridge. I much prefer them out of the can, but I could never use all of them. Never tried freezing them.
