Two familiar but powerhouse Asian ingredients, soy and sesame, infuse a unique — and dare we say addictive — taste to these olives.
Flavors are perfectly balanced for a salty Asian flair with a small kick of heat followed by an incredible zesty lemony finish. These olives are mild enough to work beautifully with grilled fish, or on a flatbread with roasted vegetables.
Because soy sauce has an umami-rich quality, high acidity wines will work best with these infused olives. For a knockout pairing with an extra touch of class, serve with a sparkling rosé.
With such big, savory flavors in these olives, we’d recommend pairing with mild cheeses. A fresh burrata or ricotta will work beautifully, especially with some of the olive juice drizzled on top and toast points on the side.
Make it a Party:
Asian flavors lend themselves well to small bites and are always a huge crowd pleaser. A selection of Asian appetizers are known as a Pu Pu Platter. Keep it easy and order a few things from your favorite local Chinese restaurant such as potstickers, scallion pancakes and shrimp toasts.
