Fried Garlic Chili Oil Recipe

  • 1/4 cup avocado oil or vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves garlic , thinly sliced
  • 1 TBSP sesame seeds
  • 1 TBSP crushed red pepper flakes

Heat 1/4 cup oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Once hot, add thinly sliced garlic and pan fry, stirring often, until garlic is just beginning to turn golden, approx. 3 minutes. Stir in sesame seeds and cook an additional minute until garlic is crisp and toasty. Carefully transfer mixture to a small bowl and add crushed red pepper flakes. Mix well and set aside

Feel free to keep things mild with just a dash of Sriracha or embrace the heat by adding extra. The spice level is entirely up to you! My idea of sizzling perfection is 2-3 TBSP of Sriracha to pair with my sliced jalapeno and crushed red pepper flake kissed chili oil.

When it comes to the spice, start small and add more as you go for a totally customizable heat level.

The recipe below serves two but can easily be doubled to yield 4 meal-sized servings if needed. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 6-8 oz raw shrimp (fresh or defrosted from frozen)
  • 4 oz mixed gourmet mushrooms (baby bella, shiitake, and oyster mushrooms)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 3-4 scallions
  • 1-2 heads baby bok choy
  • 2 tsp light sesame oil or avocado oil (I use 1 tsp of each for mild sesame flavor)
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 2 TBSP Sriracha or sesaon to taste
  • 2 TBSP low-sodium soy sauce or season to taste
  • 4-5 ounces uncooked ramen noodles see notes

Instructions

  1. Thaw shrimp if using frozen. You can buy pre-prepped shrimp or add a few minutes to your prep time to peel/clean the shrimp yourself.

  2. Next prep your veggies and measure out remaining ingredients. This dish comes together fast so prepping it all at once is the way to go!

  3. Thinly slice jalapeño. Peel and thinly slice garlic. Use a sharp knife to separate both the green onion and the bok choy into white and green segments. Thinly chop each and set aside.

  4. Bring a large pot to medium-high heat with 2 tsp oil. Add mixed mushrooms, sliced jalapeño, and the sliced white portions of your bok choy and green onion. (Save the tender green parts for the end) Saute for approx. 4 minutes or until tender, adding the garlic towards the end and cooking an additional 30 seconds or until fragrant.

  5. Add your broth, soy sauce, and Sriracha. Mix well and switch to high heat to bring broth to a boil.

  6. Once boiling, add shrimp and ramen noodles. Cook for approx 3-4 minutes or until shrimp are curled and opaque and ramen noodles are tender. Add the thinly sliced bok choy and stir to separate noodles.

  7. Give the broth a little taste and further season if/as desired. A little extra Sriracha will add heat while extra soy sauce will add saltiness.

  8. Ready to eat? Top ramen and broth with the sliced green onion tops and any extras your heart desires. You can check out the blog post for even more tasty topping ideas!

Recipe Notes

Like it SPICY!? Add extra Sriracha, jalapeño, chili oil to taste, or control the heat with crushed red pepper flakes if desired.

I like to use about 4 oz dried ramen noodles here but you can adjust this if desired. My favorite ramen to use is a little less traditional, as it’s not fried and does not come with a seasoning packet. They’re labeled as KA-ME Curly Noodles (in a red package) and are a great healthier option for ramen bowls! They’re also pretty easy to find! I’ve found them at Publix, Target, and on Amazon.
