Chilli and parsley oil

Side Serves 6 5 min
Drizzle this punchy dressing over simply cooked greens to pep them up. Stir through pasta with more fresh parsley for a quick weeknight dinner. Or eat with pan-fried scallops, squid, prawns, lamb chops or steak. This'll keep for a while – but beware that as the chilli infuses the oil it will get spicier over time!

Ingredients

  • a small handful fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 100ml olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Method

Prep time: 5 min
  • Step 1

    Mix everything together in a small bowl or shake in a jam jar. Season to taste. This keeps well.
