Chili-Ginger Infused Oil

This is a rich oil that goes a long way! Menu Sugguestions: Because of the large proportion of sesame oil, this is a rich oil. A little bit 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 unmatched 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.

    Sharon, this is delicious, love the flavors. I used peanut oil with the sesame oil, kosher salt. also cut the recipe in half, as i only had that much sesame oil. Worked good. Great on bread. Thank you so much for the recipe, Definitely a keeper.
