Easy Spanish Gilda Recipe - Pepper, Olive, & Anchovy Skewers
This Gilda recipe makes the perfect Spanish appetizer to serve on a night of pintxos! It's salty, acidic, and delicious, perfect for pairing with cocktails or Spanish vermouth.
- 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.
