I use smaller anchovies than maangchi does in some of her recipes.

As long as it is dried anchovies and you use a comparable amount the flavour will be pretty close at least.

I haven’t had any problems.

I use smaller ones because the local asian market doesn’t have the larger ones at the moment.

I would not try it with these though;

it is too difficult to estimate the amount needed, plus you won’t be able to get the guts out.

As maangchi explains; you basically have 4 sizes (large, medium, small and tiny)

I can’t get the large ones maangchi uses, so I use medium or small instead.
