I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Chili Crisp
...in your mind.

Chili Crisp


  • 1 cup neutral oil
  • 1” piece of fresh ginger, cut into 4 or 5 thin slices
  • 1/3 cup chopped shallots
  • 1/3 cup chopped garlic
  • 1/4 cup red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sodium soy sauce


  1. Put oil & ginger in a small pot, and warm over medium heat about 10 minutes
  2. Then add the shallots and garlic - cook approximately 20 minutes or until shallot and garlic are golden brown and crispy
  3. While it cooks, put remaining ingredients in a metal bowl (at the very least heatproof) and mix to combine
  4. When the shallots & garlic are done, add them to the oil slowly to the red pepper mixture - stir really well to combine
  5. When it’s cool, put in a glass jar - use on absolutely everything
