Job & Perry: “Crispy chili oil is one of the best inventions of the 21st century. The condiment comes from the Chinese province of Sichuan. This region is known for its spicy food and believe us, they can do that.

This chili oil will immediately become a permanent item in your refrigerator. It’s that addictive. It tastes good with every bowl of fried rice, with sandwiches, in soup, on a fried egg, and so on. We made this during a Christmas dinner as a side dish with gnocchi and Parmesan cheese. Not very authentic, but an instant classic!”

Gnocchi with crispy chili oil and Parmesan from Job & Perry

Gnocchi with crispy chili oil and parmesan

Heat the oil in a saucepan to 185°C.

Coarsely grind the peppercorns in a mortar.

Mix all ingredients, except the fried garlic and shallot, in a large bowl. Pour over the oil and stir well. Be careful, because the oil is scalding hot. Let cool completely.

Finally, stir the fried garlic and shallot into the mixture and put the crispy chili oil in a pot.*

Bring a pan with plenty of water and salt to the boil. Cook the gnocchi according to package directions or until they float to the top. Drain and let it steam dry for a while.

Spoon a few spoonfuls of crispy chili oil through the gnocchi and grate a lot of Parmesan cheese over it. Serve immediately.

*The chili oil can be kept in the refrigerator for about a month, but it will probably be used up within a few days.
