This is an exceptionally easy recipe for boquerones with potato chips. All it takes is a bowl of any of the new and utterly delicious gourmet potato chips, a plate of marinated white anchovies called boquerones, a bundle of toothpicks for spearing the fish, and voilà – your own version of fish and chips. It hits pretty much all the wine pairing notes, costs mere cents to make, and elicits a huge return on the satisfaction index. Simply put, everyone will love it.
Get a two-fer with those boquerones by riffing on the traditional gilda (hyperlink to Gilda section in previous article). Stack one on a toothpick along with a Basque pepper, big green olive, and a chunk of Manchego cheese that’s been bathed briefly in olive oil.
