Place the flour in a sided dish, the egg in a second side dish, and combine the bread crumbs, cornmeal, oregano, paprika and cayenne in a third. Coat the olives in flour, shaking off the excess. Coat in the egg mixture, ensuring they are evenly coated. Set in the cornmeal/crumb mixture, turning to coat and gently pressing the mixture on to help it adhere. Heat the oil for deep-frying to 325 degrees F. Fry the olives in batches until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Arrange on a platter and serve the tzatziki sauce alongside. Use toothpicks, for skewering the olives and dipping them into the sauce.

Serving Suggestions

Make these olives part of tapas buffet or antipasto platter by serving them with five or six other Mediterranean-style finger foods. The dolmades, roasted peppers, shaved prosciutto, marinated artichokes and marinated feta cheese in our deli department would work nicely. So would some of the recipes on our website, such as Warm Fig, Goat Cheese and Pistachio Crostini; Peel and Eat Spanish-style Prawns; Mussels Vinaigrette; and Mediterranean-style Stuffed Camembert.
