  • Add chili flakes and sesame seeds to a bowl or jar. Set aside.
  • Add Filippo Berio Extra Light Olive Oil, coriander, fennel seeds, cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, star anise, Sichuan peppercorns, shallot, lemongrass, and garlic to a sauce pan. Heat over medium low heat and simmer for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • After simmering, make sure the oil reaches 225-250 degrees F. This results in a lighter chill oil where the chili flakes are moderately toasted. If you want a darker, more toasted chili oil, bring the oil up to 250-300 degrees F.
  • Pour oil over chili flakes. Add salt and serve!
