Cooking Instructions

1

Halve feta horizontally to create 2 1/2-inch-thick blocks. Cut each block roughly into 1-inch cubes to yield about 18 pieces total.


2

Whisk egg with flour and water in shallow bowl. Place bread crumbs in shallow, rimmed dish. Working with a few pieces at a time, dip feta cubes in egg mixture, coat with bread crumbs and place on plate. Refrigerate while preparing olives.


3

In medium sauté pan, heat olive oil on low. Add garlic, orange zest and fennel. Sauté 2 minutes, taking care not to brown garlic. Add olives and pepper flakes; toss to coat. Sauté for 1 minute. Transfer olives to serving bowls. Wipe pan with paper towel.


4

Remove feta from refrigerator. Pour thin layer of oil in bottom of same sauté pan. Heat over medium until hot. Test by adding a few bread crumbs to pan—they should sizzle. Gently place 8 to 10 feta cubes in pan. When cubes begin to brown, about 1 to 2 minutes, use a fork to turn each cube and brown other side. Continue to cook 1 to 2 minutes. Remove cubes with spatula; place on plate. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt. Repeat with remaining feta cubes, adding additional oil if necessary. Serve immediately with olives.
