Italian Fried Sage with Anchovies Classic Recipe

Italian Fried sage with anchovies

Sage on the balcony is growing visibly. Strangely is one of those herbs that I use very little, if not in the classic preparations like butter&sage or saltimbocca. Sometimes I prepare the mice of fried sage that I like particularly stuffed with anchovy paste. Some people in the batter puts a whipped egg white, me I gave up for lack of eggs at home.
Definitely not a new recipe for you readers Italians, but for those American might be a nice novelty:-)


  •  60 sage leaves
  • anchovy paste in a tube
  • 120 grams of flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt
  • 1 glass of beer
  • oil for frying


Prepare a batter with flour, olive oil, salt and beer. The consistency should be semi-liquid. Wash and dry the sage leaves. Put a little 'of anchovy paste between two sage leaves, dip in batter and fry in hot oil.

Enjoy this little Italian classic recipe!
