Roman Wine-fried Anchovies

I've had a few requests for some ancient recipes, and luckily in my collection I have a reprint of the Roman Cookery of Apicius, translated and adapted for the modern kitchen by John Edwards.  This is a quick and easy one for you fish lovers.

You need:
6oz fresh anchovies
1 raw egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon of olive oil
quarter cup white wine
Quarter cup fish stock

Wash and trim anchovies and brush them with egg.  In the frying pan, heat olive oil with wine and stock added. When pan is very hot, add the anchovies and cook lightly. Serve with sprinkling of pepper.
