Sausage Stuffed Fried Olives with Spicy Tomato Dip

By Chef Deniz Tarakcioglu


  • 12 pitted large green olives
  • 150mL favourite sausage meat
  • 100mL flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 100mL fine bread crumbs
  • 200mL canned tomatoes, crushed by hand
  • 10mL tarragon
  • 3 cloves of garlic, puréed
  • 10mL chili flakes


  • Place the sausage meat of your choice into a piping bag. Place the tip of the piping bag into the cavity of the olives and squeeze, applying a little bit of pressure. Dip the olives into the flour mixture, then into the egg and finally the bread crumbs to coat. Freeze for 10 minutes. In a small saucepan, heat up 15mL of olive oil. Add chili, tarragon and garlic. Fry for 10 seconds until fragrant. Add tomatoes and cook on medium high heat for around 10 minutes or until thick. Season to taste. Bring at least 1” of vegetable oil to 350F. Fry the olives until golden brown and cooked through, around 3 minutes. Drain on paper towel or a rack and serve with the dipping sauce.
