This dish features ‘nduja. ‘Nduja is a spreadable pork salami that’s mixed with peppers and spices. This dish also has leeks and roasted cauliflower and brussels sprouts rounding out a hearty winter pasta.
We ate a similar dish at ABC Cocina and knew that I had to recreate it for my daughters. If the other components are already made this dish comes together really fast. We eat these little shrimpies with our grain bowls, as a side dish or appetizer. I love to set out a big platter at gatherings and let people snack. Just increase the recipe proportions to your needs.
This chili oil is inspired by a recent trip to ABC Cocina where they served it with shrimp. When I made if for my house and the oil did not last long. We eat it with shrimp, fish, chicken, on eggs, with rice, on pizza. Things like “why don’t we always have chili oil in the house”, was said. So now we always do. It just adds a little extra something-something to whatever you’re eating.
