A José Recipe

Gordal olives stuffed with anchovies and marinated in olive oil, lemon zest & oregano

We tend to normally think of olives as just a snack whilst you wait for your main meal José changes this by showing you how to make them the centre piece of your table.  Make sure to head down to the BBC Good Food Show this weekend and see what else José prepares using olives between 12-2pm.

Roll up the anchovies and stuff a half into each olive.  In a bowl, add the lemon zest, oregano, olive oil and black pepper and gently toss throughly, allow to marinate for at least 2 hours before serving.


250g Gordal olives, pitted

30g tinned anchovies, drained of oil and cut in half

2 tsp strips lemon zest

½ tsp dried oregano

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper
