Marinated Olives

Marinated Olives Recipe 2

These delicious marinated olives are served with cocktails in the Merrion Hotel’s drawing room. The recipe calls for both black and green olives. They are tossed in olive oil, with an Asian inspired blend of red chiles, ginger, garlic and lemon grass.

Feel free to experiment with your favorite herbs, but the garlic is definitely a must!

Thanks to chef Ed Cooney, who shared the recipe with us. He also shared his Irish fish and chips!
