I guess it is fairly common but I never saw it until recently on a menu - Nicoise, picholine & kalamata olives roasted in a rosemary & orange zest-infused olive oil
This sounds like a good idea that never occured to me before. Any favorite roasted olive combo?
Some recipes I googled that sound good to me
Roasted Olives with Fennel & Lemon
Roasted Olives with Lavender and Truffle Oil
Even Lindsay has a roasted olive recipe
They say of them "Roasting olives is a fun and simple technique that gives them a slightly chewy outside and a dense flesh and transforms them into a truly unique bite"
I guess it would be a good way to up the flavor of olives that aren't that good on their own.
What other combos would be good for roasted olives?
