Spanish Recipe - spicy olivesIngredients

  • Bowlful of olives. Fresh are best… but out of a jar will work too
  • 3 or four peeled and thinly sliced garlic cloves
  • Couple of small chopped fresh chillies… or half a teaspoon of crushed dried chillies
  • 1/2 teaspoon of coriander seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon of fennel seeds
  • Good glug of extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Grated rind of half a lemon


  • If there are stones in your olives… just crush them slightly so that people can easily remove them
  • Mix everything in a large bowl.
  • Serve!

Yes it is that simple.

These are a real favourite of ours… and the ingredients are such that we usually have indoors too… so it’s a really fast and simple snack to whip up if guests drop by for a glass of Vino Collapso on a summery afternoon
