Typically it looks something like this:

  (font-lock-add-keywords org-mode
                          (list (list (concat "\\(\"[^\"]+\"\\)")
                                      1 highlight-face t)))

Where `highlight-face' is the face you'd like to use.  The regexp doesn't
handle cases where \" legitimately occurs in a string, either.  The part
between the \\(\\) is what gets colorized.
