Crab and Shrimp linguine w/ Red Chili Garlic Butter

Red chili crisps in oil is my latest obsession. I love the heat it gives off. Toss a little bit in your regular dishes adds such great amount of flavor. It can easily make a boring dish interesting.

Red chili crisp in oil are simmered Schezuan peppers so they get super crispy then added into oil with whole peanuts so its just a concentrate of flavor. With this recipe though you want to be careful and get the red chili oil with the peppers and not just straight chili oil.

I love this recipe because its surprisingly quick while it seems like it something you’ve taken all day to prepare. The sweet crab and shrimp matched with the Schezuan gives this the perfect balance of sweet and heat.
