WHO I MADE IT FOR?
My attempt to recreate an amuse bouche found at Somerville’s Sarma for a dinner for Kelsey and me. Very easy to make. Next time I would probably run the panko breadcrumbs through a food processor so they’re a little finer.

INGREDIENTS
Flour (1/2 cup)
Eggs (1-2 whisked)
Panko breadcrumbs (1 cup)
Olives (25 of your choice, pitted)
Vegetable oil (for frying)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat up vegetable oil in pot of your choosing/deep fryer until thermometer reads 350.
  2. Place breadcrumbs in food processor and blend for a few seconds until breadcrumbs are finer. Remove and place in a bowl.
  3. Place eggs and flour in separate bowls.
  4. Taking a few olives at a time, add them to flour bowl to coat. Then transfer to egg bowl to coat. Then transfer to breadcrumb bowl to coat.
  5. Add breaded olives to oil and fry until coating is crispy and brown (~2-3 mins). Remove and serve immediately.

BOTTOM LINE: Really easy, delicious appetizer. Perfect for a party.
