Hot chilli paprika seed oil is created by cold-pressing the seeds of selected spicy red peppers. A versatile oil with a tantalising deep ruby colour and pure and lasting heat, it is perfect for bringing a mouth-watering piquant flavour to your dishes.
Chilli oil is a flavourful choice for frying and gives a spicy edge to your favourite Hungarian recipes. Alternatively, use it to marinate meat ready for the BBQ or drizzle over salads for a fiery twist. If you are a lover of spice, you can also try it in Asian cuisine as a substitute for your regular cooking oil; you won't be disappointed!
The gentle cold-pressing ensures all of the valuable bioactive compounds and nutrients found in the seeds are retained. Chilli oil is an excellent natural source of vitamins A and E, as well as a range of essential Omega fatty acids and powerful anti-oxidants.

"A ruby red oil with a sparkling clarity. Fragrant and complex - and the character of the spice comes through on the palate. It is hot and potent stuff - very pure paprika heat, instantly hot on the tip of the tongue and lingering heat through the swallow. A clean and interesting oil with a lot of potential uses."
