This is a Chili Oil made with “crazy hot” ichimi, which is so spicy that just one sprinkle makes your taste buds awake. A sprinkle is so hot it make your eyes wide open. By adding garlic, the hidden flavor of chili peppers is boosted, resulting in a deep flavor. The jar is filled with ingredients that are crunchy to eat, so this Chili Oil is perfect for all kinds of meals, including Japanese, Western, and Chinese dishes. For example, you can mix it with sugar, soy sauce, sake, gochuchang, and sesame oil pouring it over steamed pork with all the stuffed ingredients or you can add spiciness and richness to your usual curry. If you add it to the sauce of dumplings, the “crazy hot” spiciness and garlic flavor will enhance the taste of dumplings even more. For those who love spicy food and garlic, it’s also recommended to put the crunchy ingredients directly on the dumplings. Please try new ways to use the sauce like using it as a base for pasta oil.
