Olio Piccante

Yield: Makes about 1½ cups


  • 2 cups extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 jalapeno peppers, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup hot red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika


In a small saucepan, Combine the oil, jalapeños, pepper flakes, and paprika and bring just to a simmer over medium heat.

Pour the oil (and flavorings) into a heatproof bowl and let cool, then cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, or overnight.

Strain the oil and keep refrigerated until ready to use. It can be stored in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed jar for up to 10 days–no longer.


This is great drizzled over grilled vegetables, seafood pastas, or pizza and grilled bread.
