While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil over a gentle heat, add the garlic and cook for a minute then add the anchovies, chilli and lemon zest and cook for another minute.
Add the fish pieces, season with salt and fry until almost cooked through. Add the wine and simmer to reduce by half then add the reserved cooking water and the cooked spaghetti, lemon juice and parsley and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
