You forgot to mention to add the cream in the method section. However, I made it tonight without it and it tasted great. I don't think it needs the cream at all. Just be generous with the anchovy oil. Yum!

Aaron, thanks for the photo of your creation. I've added it to the recipe. Also, the method now says when to add the cream.
