Sautéd Olives

Sautéd Olives may be served as a starter at a barbecue, a side dish accompanying pasta or pizza or just a tasty snack. It was served to us as an appetizer at an Italian restaurant. We all enjoyed it.

My attempts to make the this dish tastes a lot like the olives served to us, at the restaurant. This is really, really quick and easy. Of course, olives, just by themselves are tasty and nutritious. This recipe uses chili pepper. The amount of chili determines how spicy it tastes. Do adjust the amounts to suit yor tastes. Here is the recipe.


  • 1 can 12 oz. olives (any kind)
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red chili peppers
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic


  • Open can and drain off all liquid
  • Add olives and stir to coat olives in oil
  • Add garlic & crushed red peppers
  • sauté for about 3-5 minutes
  • Generally there is no need for salt. Taste and decide
  • It is ready to be served
