One of most unusual infusions, this Chilli & Lemon oil is really interesting, combining the warmth of the chillies with a tang & freshness of Sicilian Lemon.
It goes beautifully drizzled over pizza, pasta, meats, seafood and more. Add a splash to a stir fry to give an extra dimension of flavour or simply to dunk crusty bread into it!
Be adventurous with salads, roast vegetables, risotto – everything it touches will get a fantastic lemony kick! You’ll get the lemon first, followed by the chilli in about 8 seconds, then the lemon comes back again to take the edge of the chilli. Definitely unlike any other you’ve tasted.
We use a gorgeous, single-estate British rapeseed oil that’s cold-pressed, so it’s as good drizzled on salads as it is for cooking with. Apart from supporting British farmers, we find the infusions taste ‘cleaner’ and are more defined using rapeseed oil. As well as having half the saturated fat than olive oil, rapeseed oil gets hotter before reaching its smoking point so it’s easier to get things crispy, like roast potatoes, with less effort.
