Ingredients

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic, smashed

1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper

1 large sprig fresh rosemary, 2 bay leaves, or both

Zest of 1 orange, peeled in long strips with a vegetable peeler

Zest of 1 lemon, peeled in long strips with a vegetable peeler

12 ounces mixed olives, such as kalamata, nicoise, or cerignola, drained

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Put the olive oil, garlic, red pepper, herbs, and citrus zests in a medium skillet. Heat over medium-high heat, swirling the pan until the mixture is fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the olives, salt, and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is golden and the zest begins to curl, about 5 minutes more. Discard and remove bay leaves, if using. Serve warm or at room temperature.
