Chilli oil is the perfect addition to pizza, as drizzle on a salad or a dip for breads. 

What you will need

  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 2 whole serrano chillies
  • 250ml olive oil
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • Clean bottle or jar


  1. Place the chilli flakes, serrano chillies and olive oil in a saucepan.
  2. Gently heat until hot, but not boiling, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the bay leaf and let the oil cool.
  4. Pour into a clean bottle or jam jar.

The oil can be strained, or for maximum heat and decoration leave the chillies and herbs in the jar.
