F3ff23d824ccc4e2397d 550

Recipe made by the ambassador for Olives from Spain José Pizarro. Spain is the largest producer of olives in the world. The four main varieties of Spanish table olive available from major supermarkets in the UK are: Manzanilla, Gordal, Hojiblanca and Cacereña. Spanish table olives can be served in a different number of ways including: whole, pitted, stuffed with one or more ingredients such as pimento, onion, tuna, anchovy, salmon, almond, etc. It is a healthy seasonal ingredient, with the Spanish olive harvest running from September-March.













Trans-fat Free


2 tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
1 small onions
1 clove garlic
finely chopped
2 large eggs
free-range, plus 1 more to bake the pastries
185 grams tuna
in a tin with olive oil
20 each green olives
spanish, such as manzanilla, pitted and chopped
1 x sea salt
1 x black pepper
freshly ground
375 grams puff pastry


Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a frying pan and sauté the onion and garlic over a low heat – don’t let them turn golden, just until they are very soft.

Meanwhile, boil the 2 eggs for 10 minutes in boiling water, add a teaspoon of salt to the water – it makes it easier to peel the eggs. Leave to cool and then dice them finely.

Drain the tuna well and place it into the onion-garlic mixture. Warm it through and then add the chopped egg and the olives.

Preheat the oven 220°C/425°F/ gas 7.

Roll out the pastry until it’s very thin, around 2mm, and cut out eight 15cm circles.

Spoon an eighth of the tuna mixture into one half of each circle, making sure you leave the edges clear.

Fold the other half of the pastry circle over and stick the edges with a little water.

Finish off by pressing the edges together with the prongs of a fork.

Beat the remaining egg and brush the pastries with it. Place the pastries on a baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.

Serve with tapenade and a green salad.

Makes 8 to 10 pastries.
