Battered and fried bread slices topped with anchovy fillets and capers: does anything sound better?

Crostini alla chietina hail from the town of Chieti, in central Abruzzo. They are often served as a snack alongside an aperitif, or as part of a spread of antipasti.

The recipe is, as many traditional Italian recipes, pretty straightforward, and counts on a short list of ingredients. Opt for the best anchovies you can find, here, for their quality will determine how good these will turn out.
