16 large queen olives, pimiento removed
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)

2. Whisk together egg and 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl. Dredge olives in flour, dip in egg mixture, and dredge in panko.

3. Pour oil to a depth of 2 inches into a Dutch oven; heat to 350°. Fry olives, in batches, 3 minutes or until golden; drain on paper towels.
