Green olives filled with piquillo peppers and anchovy

Preparation

Using the flat side of a knife, press each olive until the pit pops out, being careful not to split the olive in half. Cut the anchovy fillets lengthwise to create 8 long slices, and cut the piquillo peppers into eight 1cm/ ½ inch-wide strips.

Put 1 anchovy slice and 1 pepper strip into each olive.

Split open the garlic clove by placing it on a chopping board and pressing down hard with the flat side of a knife. Mix the garlic, Spanish olive oil, orange zest, and vinegar in a small bowl. Place the stuffed olives in the dressing and allow them to marinate for 30 minutes. Then sprinkle with a little sea salt and arrange them on a plate.
