    They don't get much easier than this one. Total prep time is about 15 minutes. I didn't have a cast iron skillet, so I made sure my pan was good and hot before putting in the oil then the rest. Cooking time was a bit longer than stated(probably because of the pan used. I substituted a lb. of cocktail shrimp(tails removed and it was fine. I tried it as soon as it was done and thought it was good...the next day, it was even better! None of us care for anchovies so they were left out.
