This recipe makes a quick but impressive snack to serve with drinks. Heating the olives makes them absorb more flavour without having to marinade them for ages
- Mixed Olives 500g with stones, drained
- Extra-virgin Olive oil 2 tbsp
- Lemon Juice 2 tbsp
- Preserved Lemon 1, halved, seeds and flesh scooped out and discarded, rind finely diced
- Fennel Seeds 2 tsp
Put everything in a pan and warm gently for about 5 minutes, or put in the microwave on high for 2½ minutes, stirring halfway. Tip into serving bowls and eat straight away, while still warm.
