NBCRightNow.com - Here's the recipe for Chef Brian Hodges' Infused Olive Oil from today's Mike's Local Gourmet!

Ingredients

2-3 tablespoons smoked paprika
2 cups olive oil


1) In a medium pot, add paprika over medium-high heat.  Stir frequently to prevent burning, but a little smoke is good!

2) Once the paprika turns a bright red and becomes aromatic, add olive oil and stir to incorporate.

3) Add a little salt and pepper and stir.

4) Using a coffee filter (or a wire strainer if you have one) SLOWLY pour oil through filter and into a bowl.

This recipe works with all spices!  Get creative and try it out!  I tried it using a blend of Indian spices (turmeric, curry and garam masala) and it took grilled chicken to another level!

This infused olive oil adds a kick to chicken, fish and adds depth to salad!  If you have a squirt bottle (can buy them at kitchen supply stores for $1) you can get artsy and make your plates look professional and impress your friends!

Enjoy!
- Mike
