ISO Flavored Olive Oil Use

I was gifted with 375 mL of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, flavored with Blood Oranges. I am looking for some suggestions, besides salad dressing.

How would you use this?

Reading too many soap making books. My first thought was.. Send it to me! I'll make Dish washing liquid with it.

Will these do instead?

I had a similar problem a couple of years ago; my local gourmet store has an "olive oil bar" and I succumbed to temptation and then went what the heck?

I think it would be good to lightly sautee some veggies in it and serve over pasta or rice, hot or cold.

Marinade some chicken strips or shrimp in it, then either grill or bread and sautee, broil, or bake.

Toss some with some already steamed/boiled shrimp for an appetizer.

Thank you, thank you!

I'm making this one today: Chilled Soba Noodles with Mandarin Oranges

Sometimes you just need that little extra nudge in the right direction.

Oh yes, I wander into a place called "Oil & Vinegar" on occasion...I come out with all kinds of odd things. Had a grapefruit oil once, it was really good. And the vinegars...oh my!

Some green beans with blood orange instead of lemon would be good!

Thanks, Claire!
