This article is about anchovies. For the raw version, see Raw anchovies.

Anchovies is an edible seafood item available to non-members as well as members. Eating anchovies heals only 1 hitpoint, which is less even than eating shrimp, a lower level fish.

Any player may cook raw anchovies on a range or fire to gain 30 Cooking experience points, as level 1 Cooking is the only requirement. Player will stop burning them at 34 cooking level. These are also one of the few cooking items which are worth more cooked than raw and so it is profitable to cook them. By themselves, anchovies are not useful in training Cooking or for restoring hitpoints for higher-leveled players. However, they are an essential ingredient for the popular anchovy pizzas, which players can make at level 55 Cooking, and which heal 18 hitpoints each, making them the highest-healing non-members' food. This may be a reason for cooked anchovies being more expensive than raw ones.

Cooked anchovies is also an ingredient when crafting impling jars.
