My Garlic chili oil recipe is made in minutes with a few simple ingredients! This spicy oil is perfect for drizzling over ramen noodle bowls, sautéing veggies, dunking dumplings and potstickers, and so much more!
Add crushed red chili flakes to a small heat-safe bowl and set aside. I like using crushed red pepper flakes, but multiple varieties will work here!
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. 2 minutes.
Stir in sesame seeds and cook an additional minute until garlic is crisp and toasty. Take care not to overcook the garlic as it will continue crisping once removed from heat.
Carefully transfer mixture to the red pepper flake bowl. Mix well and allow to cool.
Use as a dipping oil for dumplings or potstickers, as a base or drizzling oil for ramen noodle bowls and soups, and as a stir fry oil for sauteeing veggies and protein. Enjoy!
Prefer a kiss of smoky sesame oil flavor? You cam replace a little of the avocado oil with pure sesame oil. It's delicious!
