Cilantro Mint Salmon Salad | Hot Chili Pepper Oil (Part 1)
This is the “POP” in the recipe, it really brings out a fresh, zesty flavor to the salmon!
1 cup canola oil (can use olive oil)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
3 tbsp crushed dried chili pepper
Salt (not more than a dash)
Heat small pot over medium-low heat. Add oil, dried chili pepper and salt and heat for 5Â minutes, stirring. Do not allow it to smoke, reduce temperature if it smokes.
Remove from heat and cool for additional 5 minutes. Pour into a marinating dish (I used aÂ shallow glass dish).
