Remove the pits from the dates. Gently stuff each date with 1 or 2 almonds, depending on the size of the date. Seal the almond inside by pressing the date around it.

In a medium sauté pan over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add the dates and gently sauté until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with the orange zest and fleur de sel.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 days.

To remove the pits from the dates, hold the date so a long side is horizontal. With a paring knife, gently make a slit and slip out the pit.
