Olivada is an olive pate from Spain which is similar to the better-known French tapenade. It can be made with black or green olives, smooth or chunky, and with the addition of a variety of other Mediterranean ingredients. It’s very quick and easy to prepare and makes a great party hors d’oeuvre or snack when served on toasted bread with vinegar caviar balls.
Danny Kingston serves up these pretty smoked mackerel canapés just in time for Christmas. These bites are all about balancing the rich smoked mackerel with light and sharp flavours of pickled ginger, cranberries and lime zest.
