Smoked oil.... what to do with it?

happyclaired Jul 16, 2009 05:09 AM

I recently received a bottle of smoked olive oil, I've drizzled it on a few salads, and in a marinade for chicken. Any ideas of how else to use it? The flavour is delicious, and quite intense, I have no clue how to marry other flavours with it - in case it overpowers them. Many thanks!

    Estevitz, the Venezuelan with a cooking show on elgourmet (in Latin America), just used a few drops on the sauce around a plated chunk of fish.

      It is usually used as a finishing oil - like over a steak, maybe with some balsamic.

      Try it in some homemade aioli.

        Try processing it in the food processor with tapioca maltodextrin to make a smoked olive oil powder for use on everything from fish fillets to popcorn.
