Category: Condiments

 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Oil, Corn or Peanut
  • 1 c Oil, Sesame, Japanese
  • 1/2 c Scallions, green & white
  • - cut in rings
  • 15 Ginger quarter-size coins
  • - smashed
  • 2 tb Peppercorns, Szechwan brown
  • 2/3 c Chile Flakes, dried red
  • -shockingly pungent
  • 2 ts Salt, Kosher


Combine all ingredients in a heavy, non aluminum 1 1/2 quart saucepan. Rest
a deep-fry thermometer on the rim of the pot. Over moderately low heat,
bring the mixture to a bubbly 225 degrees stirring occasionally. Let simmer
for 15 minutes, checking to ensure the temperature does not rise. Remove
from the heat and let stand until cool or overnight.

Strain the oil without pressing the solids; then, discard the solids. Store
the oil in an impeccably clean glass jar at cool room temperature.

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 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.
