Chili crisp or chili crunch is a Chinese chili oil condiment available online or in the Asian section of a well-stocked grocery store. It is often a combination of oil, chiles, garlic, ginger and other aromatics, which adds a tingly, umami-rich flavor to any dish.
For an extra kick of heat, stir in an extra 1 tablespoon of chili crisp to the sauce. Serve this dish as an appetizer with crusty bread.
