  • 1 small pickled gherkin or a small chunk of your favorite pickle
  • 2 guindilla pickled peppers you can substitute a small chunk of pepperoncini
  • 1 pitted green olive
  • 1 salted anchovy fillet The better quality the better this pintxo will be! Ideally go for a good brand that comes from the refrigerated section. Ortiz is a good brand that can be found in online shops around the world.


  • Drain the olives and pickles, and remove the stalk of the guindillas. If the gherkins are too large for one mouthful, slice them in half.
  • Start by skewering the gherkin on a toothpick.
  • Next, skewer one extreme end of the anchovy fillet, followed by the guindilla peppers.
  • Skewer the other end of the anchovy fillet. The anchovy should now be threaded through the peppers.
  • Finish it by skewering the olive on top, and then dress your skewers in a bit of extra virgin olive oil.
