Do I detect a bit of residue in the bottom of the bottle? That won't hurt anything but I use a very fine strainer (chinois). Poured carefully, none of that residue will get poured out ( IF there is some).
More important----- how does it taste to you? Now you're the one to decide if you need more or less chili flakes. Good job!
No residue at all. Tastes like spicy hot oil.
I used a couple tbs frying four pot sticker s for lunch. Nice and hot, but not to hot.
I did get the nose action when I added the chili oil to the hot pan.
I made a dipping sauce with soy sauce, honey and a few pepper flakes. Heated it up in the microwave and lunch was spicy and good.
I can see many other uses for my new oil. It will always be available at my station.
