Ma-La Oil

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Nyteglori

Because of the large proportion of sesame oil, this is a rich oil. A little goes a long way. A spoonful added to a salad dressing or brushed on the plate on which a fish will steam or on the skin of a just-smoked or roasted bird gives an inimitable touch of lushness. If you are a bread baker, brush a bit on your next loaf; if you are tossing pasta, drizzle a bit on the noodles just before serving
