7 ways to use chili crisp, according to professional chefs
What is chili crisp?
Chili crisp is a spicy oil-based condiment most commonly used in Chinese cuisine, made by infusing oil with dried red chiles, fried garlic, shallots, ginger, and other aromatics. The result is a fiery, tangy condiment filled with texture.
At China Live in San Francisco, chef George Chen makes his own chili crisp with freshly fried shallots and yellow soybeans that toasted in a hot wok until fragrant. His chili crisp is popular on a variety of dumplings, rice, and noodles dishes at China Live, but it’s especially good in the Hong Kong wok-fried noodles. “It’s a drier dish that begs for some heat and the crunchy texture goes really well with pan-fried crispy-ish egg noodles.” – Business Insider (02.04.21)
