Chili Oil

Chili oil is a versatile condiment that is made by infusing oil with chili peppers or chili flakes. It adds a spicy kick and rich flavour to a variety of dishes.

 
Here are some common uses of chili oil:

1. Cooking: Chili oil can be used as a cooking oil or as an ingredient in various recipes. It adds heat and depth of flavour to stir-fries, sautés, and marinades. You can use it to cook vegetables, meats, and noodles, or even drizzle it over pizza or grilled cheese for an extra kick.

2. Dipping Sauce: Chili oil is often used as a dipping sauce for dumplings, spring rolls, or other appetizers. It can be mixed with soy sauce, vinegar, or other condiments to create a flavourful and spicy dipping sauce.

3. Dressings and Marinades: Chili oil can be used in dressings for salads or as a marinade for meats and seafood. It adds a spicy element to vinaigrettes, giving your salads an extra punch of flavour. As a marinade, it infuses the meat or seafood with heat and enhances the overall taste.

4. Pizza and Pasta Toppings: If you enjoy spicy food, drizzling chili oil on top of pizza or tossing it with pasta can be a delicious way to add some heat. It pairs well with tomato-based sauces and adds a fiery element to these dishes.

5. Noodle Soups: Chili oil is commonly used in noodle soups such as ramen or pho. Just a small amount can elevate the flavour profile and add a spicy dimension to the broth. You can customize the heat level by adjusting the amount of chili oil added.

6. Spicy Condiment: Chili oil can be used as a standalone condiment, similar to hot sauce or sriracha. You can add it to sandwiches, burgers, tacos, or any other dish that could benefit from a spicy kick.

7. Flavouring Oils: Chili oil can be used to flavour other oils, such as olive oil or sesame oil. Infusing these oils with chili peppers creates a spicy oil that can be used in various recipes or as a finishing touch to enhance the flavour of a dish.

Remember that the heat level of chili oil can vary depending on the type and amount of chili used, so it's always a good idea to start with a small amount and adjust according to your taste preferences.
