How to Make It

Step 1

Making one skewer at a time, slide an olive to about 1 inch from tip of skewer. Slide on 1 end of an anchovy fillet, then a pepper followed by another olive. Slide other end of anchovy over olive. Slide a second pepper over the anchovy to finish the skewer.

Step 2

*Since it's difficult to find plain Manzanilla olives without pimento stuffing, you can use the pimento-stuffed type and push out the filling with a toothpick if you like. Find spicy-sweet guindilla peppers at and If you use peperoncino, rinse them first if you find them too sour.
