Five Flavor Oil

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sharon123

A light and lovely seasoned oil that works great in Asian dishes. Adapted from the China Moon Cookbook by Barbara Tropp. Wonderful for pouring over noodles and salads! It will also make a great match for fish! The oil may cloud but will not be impaired.

This is easy and very flavorful. Great for stir fried veggies. I made 1/2 the recipe. Love the heat from the ginger and peppers. Thanks Sharon.
