Why Warm Olives?
Our marinated olives have a rich, savory flavor that can be further enhanced by gently heating them. Warming olives on a skillet allows their natural oils to release, intensifying their taste and aroma. The heat adds a subtle smokiness and enhances the complexity of the marinade, making them even more irresistible. Warm olives provide a unique and unexpected twist, elevating your snack table to a new level of sophistication.
To prepare warm marinated olives on a skillet, you'll need:
- A pack of Freestyle Snacks olives of your choice (can even mix & match flavors)
- Olive oil (for the skillet)
- Optional: additional herbs, spices, or citrus zest for garnish
Preheat the Skillet: Begin by preheating a skillet over medium heat. Ensure the skillet is large enough to accommodate the olives in a single layer for even heating.
Heat the Olive Oil: Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the preheated skillet. Allow the oil to heat for a minute, ensuring it coats the bottom of the skillet evenly.
Add the Olives: Easily pour the pack of Freestyle olives into the skillet
Sauté the Olives: Gently sauté the olives for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. The heat will awaken their flavors and create a delicious aroma.
Optional Garnish: If desired, you can add extra herbs, spices, or citrus zest to the skillet during the last minute of cooking. This will infuse the olives with additional fragrance and flavor.
Serve and Enjoy: Once warmed through, transfer the olives to a serving dish. Pair them with crispy bread, crackers, or alongside a cheese and charcuterie board for a delightful summer snack.
