This dish requires anchovy as large as to wrap an olive. Or any small fish is suitable. Also buy pitted olives, although those with pits usually taste better. Remove pits with a special device, which is also used for removing cherry pits. If you are a fan of spicy dishes, stuff olives with chilly red pepper. In our recipe, sweet peppers are used as, in our opinion, this matches best with the tart taste of olives.
