A delicious chili oil with crispy chili flakes, miso paste and sesame!

Chili Crisp oils are very popular these days and it’s super easy to make your own! The basic idea of Chili Crisp Oil is that the hot oil is poured over chili flakes, which both extract the heat from the chili in the oil and fry the chili flakes so that they are nice and crispy. Apart from the oil and chili flakes, you can add any kind of spices and flavors you desire. This miso Chili Crisp is my favorite chili oil for the house! It consists of Gochugaru, a Korean type of chili flakes, and red chili flakes that are fried in oil before adding sesame and garlic. The oil is complemented by toasted sesame oil, which gives an awesome aroma, as well as soy sauce and white miso paste, which add salinity and a lot of flavor! You can use this oil the same way you can use any chili oil, and I especially like sprinkling a teaspoon of it on my eggs for breakfast! Delicious!

A delicious chili oil with crispy chili flakes, miso paste and sesame!


1 cup neutral oil (such as grape seed oil, sunflower or vegetable oil)
3 tablespoons Gochugaru (Korean chilli flakes)
1 tablespoon red chilli flakes
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon Chopped garlic
1 tablespoon soy sauce (or Tamari sauce)
2 tablespoons white Miso
2 tablespoons Sesame oil


Heat the oil in a small saucepan until it reaches 325F/170C.

Place the Gochugaru and paprika flakes in a heat-resistant bowl and pour the oil on top.

When the paprika flakes stop sizzling, mix the sesame and garlic.

Once the mixture has cooled to room temperature, stir in the soy sauce, miso paste and sesame oil.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, mix before use.

Note: The oil temperature may vary depending on the moisture content of the chilli flakes. Test if you pour a little oil on some of the red pepper flakes, and make sure it sizzles without smelling

burnt. If you feel a burning sensation, let the oil cool slightly before pouring all the oil over the chili flakes.

Note: Chili Miso oil is stored in the refrigerator for a few weeks.
