Thai Chile Infused Olive Oil


Remember that amazing olive oil by Frankies that we were telling you about a few days ago? Well, we're totally obsessed with turning it into a spicy thai chile oil that packs quite a kick. This fiery oil is perfect drizzled over freshly cooked pasta and broccoli; top with a sprinkle of parmigiano reggiano for a quick dish that's huge on flavor. It's good for a couple of months if kept refrigerated or in a cool, dry place, but when you take how delicious it is into consideration, it will probably only last a few days. How to make thai-chile infused olive oil from Frankie's in Brooklyn





In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil until small bubbles begin to form at the bottom of the pan. Turn off heat and stir in chiles. Let come to room temperature and strain. Pour remaining oil into a glass dispenser (we bought ours from Whisk) and store in the fridge. It should last until for a month or so or it becomes cloudy; at that point, throw it away.
