alici

anchovies

Also known as acciughe (although some Italians use alici for fresh anchovies, acciughe for salted; others say alici are the larger ones).

Alici arraganate are deboned anchovies layered with bread crumbs, garlic, mint, capers and oregano, moistened with oil and vinegar and baked in the oven (Puglia)

Ark of Taste: Alici di menaica, caught esclusively in the Marina di Pisciotta, in the Cilento, Campania.
