Garlic-marinated Black olives with cocktail potatoes
Recipe type: Tapas
  • Cocktail potatoes
  • 1 cup black olives
  • 2 dried red chillies
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • Red vinegar, as required
  • Dash of lemon juice
  1. Par boil potatoes and set aside. When cool cut in half.
  2. Marinated to piquant perfection, these olives are far from ordinary. To fully develop the flavor of garlic in the recipe, it is best to allow the olives to marinate for at least several days before serving.
  3. Lightly crush the olives, without breaking them, and pour into a glass jar with a lid, discarding any oil produced. Add the dried chillies and garlic, lightly shaking the jar to ensure equal distribution. Pour in enough red wine vinegar so that the jar's contents are entirely submerged.
  4. Add a dash of lemon juice, seal the jar, and store at room temperature for several days, shaking the jar occasionally.
  5. Pan fry cocktail potatoes in oil, garlic and coriander chopped. Serve marinated olives, potatoes with toothpicks.
