Crispy Sesame Garlic Chili Oil Noodles

Delight in the perfect harmony of crispy, savory, and spicy with our Crispy Sesame Garlic Chili Oil Noodles. Tender noodles are bathed in a luscious blend of sesame, garlic, and chili oil, creating a rich and aromatic sauce. The dish is elevated with a delightful crispiness, adding a textural contrast that keeps every bite exciting.





  • In a medium skillet, combine the sesame oil, garlic, shallots, and bay leaf. Cook over medium heat until the garlic turns golden and is crisping, about 5-8 minutes. Stir in the sesame seeds and ginger, cook 1 minute.
  • Pour the oil into a large bowl. Add the chili flakes, paprika, cayenne, and season with salt. I use all the oil for the noodles, but if desired, reserve half for serving.
  • Cook the noodles according to package directions. During the last 3 minutes, add the bell peppers to the water. Save 1/4 cup water, then drain. Toss the hot noodles, tamari/soy sauce, and all of the herbs with the chili oil, add water to thin to reach desired consistency.
  • Serve the noodles with additional chili oil and green onions.
