Anchovy stuffed olives are far and away the most popular olives at La Tienda. We can hardly keep them on our shelf! The olive and anchovy combination creates a perfect balance of flavor.
Served chilled with a cool drink, they evoke memories of warm summer nights of Andalucia, sitting outside enjoying tapas. Even among our friends who don’t particularly like anchovies, they have become a favorite!
We were impressed by the freshness of the anchovy stuffed olives prepared by a local olive company in Alicante – a traditional port on the Costa Blanca.
They achieve a perfect balance between the flavor of fresh salted anchovies and extra large Andalucian manzanilla olives.
When we dropped by to see how they were created, we saw the workers grinding freshly cured anchovy fillets, stuffing them into the awaiting olives, and immediately flash-pasteurizing them.
We have never tried an olive so delicious, so we placed an order on the spot.
This premium grade Peregrino anchovy stuffed olive is excellent for tapas or hors d’oeuvres; they can also add a touch of the ocean to a garden salad. Serve chilled to enjoy them at their very best.
