Angel Hair Chillies are extremely thin threads of sun-dried red chilli that make a beautiful garnish or add a light chilli warmth to dishes. Angel hair chilli has an extremely mild fruity flavour and can be used as-is, soaked in warm water or stock, or roasted. Originating in the Tianjin region of Northern China, these delicate threads are a stunning addition to any cuisine.
With mild heat and fruity, full flavour, these threads add depth to soups, salads, hors d’oeuvres, eggs or as a garnish on anything that deserves a little extra colour and spice.
To further increase the depth of flavour, lightly toast them in a pan for a few moments. When roasting keep a firm eye on them as the seconds will count, and if done without burning this will unlock their distinctive flavour.
Rich in vitamins and minerals, chillies can help reboot your body's metabolism, build immunity and promote weight loss.
