GildaThe gilda is one of the simplest tapas to make. It is actually a pintxo (peen-cho) that originated in Pais Vasco, in the Basque Country. You will see these in most bars if you visit San Sebastian!

Ingredients   –    For one gilda:

  • 2 guindilla peppers*
  • 2 pitted green Spanish olives*
  • 1 Spanish anchovy* or ½ if large
  • Skewer* or toothpick
  • Olive oil*

These are really simple to make. Buy all the ingredients by the jar and just start putting them together on skewers until you run out . . .or have desired amount of gildas.

Place the ingredients on the skewer in this order:

  • First one olive,
  • Then, one end of the anchovy.
  • Next, place two guindilla peppers with the stems removed.
  • Put the other end of the anchovy on so it wraps around the peppers.
  • Finish it off with one more olives.

When you have completed all of your gildas arrange them on the plate and drizzle a little olive oil over them and enjoy!
