This crunchy chili oil is the perfect addition to your next Asian-inspired dish! It’s easy to make and can be used in many different ways.

Before you start, Check the seasonings and dried herbs you have in your cupboard. When opening the container, you want them to have a “strong” and delicious aroma.

In a jar with a lid, add the smoked chili pepper flakes, the dried onion, oregano, garlic, paprika, and salt.

Heat the oil until it ripples and pour over the spices. Let it cool before tasting.

You can use this chili oil as a dipping sauce, a marinade, a stir-fry ingredient, or like me, to dress a roasted cauliflower salad. Enjoy!
