Tough job ....

Spotted at Zaragoza central markets, a super genki old Spanish dude just sitting on a little stool with boxes and boxes of little anchovies by his side. He was meticulously & methodically filleting these little guys. Such a small piece to work with, I'm certain he's probably been sitting there and doing that same process for most years of his life. A beautiful thing to stumble across - made each anchovy we ate through the rest of our travels in Spain taste that much better !!

They were the delightful, plump, Spanish fresh anchovies. They then went onto the next stall to be pickled and packaged .... Such tiny little things !!
