I've added the paste to egg salad. I've also added the paste when making deviled eggs to the yolks...

The story I heard, as told by Sam Zien (Sam the Cooking Guy), was that the ladies would stop into the restaurants as... err... "work" came to an end late at night, looking for a cheap, quick meal. And pasta puttanesca was born.
I can certainly see the allure of a tasty dish in a window though.

OK. If you're a "lady of the night" and you have to use food to attract men, you probably should seek another line of work.

I look at it like when gas station attendants used to check your oil and wash your windshield. Nothing wrong with full service. In some cases it may make up for poorer quality gas... but that's another thread

a fish pie (like a shepherds pie but with white fish on sauteed spinach, a white sauce flavored with anchovy and bacon, and topped with mashed potatoes and baked until golden brown.

in the base of a clam chowder with the onions and bacon

Make pockets in a leg or shoulder of lamb, stuff the pocket with garlic bits, rosemary and anchovy bits then roast.

i love them minced on a salad of sweet greens, shaved veggies, and a sweet balsamic dressing. they become the salty/umami component of the dish.

anchovies (or anchovy paste) are right at home swimming and mingling with the olives 'n stuff in a homemade tapenade. so simple and rewarding to do.
