Warm Marinated Olives and Salami

  • Author: Carlos Leo
  • Total Time: 12 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x


Warm marinated olives sauteed with saucisson sec (salami), garlic, rosemary, cumin seeds, peppercorn, smoked chili flakes, orange peels, other spices. This hors d’oeuvre goes great over crusty bread. We are using Greek green olives and Kalamata olives for a rich Mediterranean flavor for this easy appetizer recipe; a fantastic way to start a dinner party.


Units Scale


  1. Heat a large skillet or frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the salami, olives, olive oil, garlic, orange peels, chopped rosemary, coriander seeds, and whole black peppercorns. Stir frequently until the garlic is golden around the edges, around 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Let it sit in the skillet to allow the flavors to infuse, for about 20 minutes. Before serving, heat through until warm, and serve warm.
  4. Pour into a serving bowl. Serve with toothpicks and crusty bread for dipping.
