Citrus Habanero Olive Oil is here | Branch and Vines

Citrus Habanero Infused Olive Oil is here!  And for those who want a little heat, it is the perfect way to add that little zing to your cooking. It has a subtle heat that won't overpower your dishes but adds an unmistakable depth of flavor. This infused oil combines the robust citrus notes from Meyer lemons and the fruity spice of habanero peppers for a unique combination that's sure to take your meals to the next level.

One of the best ways to use this oil is in marinades or dressings. Try combining it with Branch and Vines Hickory Smoke Balsamic Vinegar for a smoky, savory twist on classic vinaigrettes or marinades. You can also use it as a finishing oil on grilled meats, seafood, and roasted vegetables. The acidity of the lemon will help bring out all of those flavors while adding its own layer of spiciness.

This infused olive oil also makes an excellent addition to batters, sauces and doughs, think flatbread to pizza sauce . Its acidity adds a bit of lift which helps create light, fluffy results. For savory options, try adding it to cornbread batter for a spicy-sweet kick or whizz it up with some herbs for an amazing pesto sauce you can use on everything from pasta to crostini.

Don't forget about sautéing either! Right at the end, drizzle Citrus Habanero Infused Olive Oil for the perfect finish for adding flavor and complexity to all sorts of vegetable dishes like stir-fries and stews. Use it as your base fat when searing fish fillets, steaks, and tofu too! Just remember that because it's already infused with spices and herbs, there's no need to add more – just let the flavors shine through on their own and enjoy!

For something a bit more unique that still takes advantage of the oil's spice level, try making citrus habanero guacamole! Mash together ripe avocados with finely chopped onion along with freshly squeezed lime juice. Then add some minced habanero pepper as well as Citrus Habanero Infused Olive Oil to taste - remember that you can always add more if it's not spicy enough! Serve with some tortilla chips or use it to top scrambled eggs or tacos.
