Peanut Oil: What's So Great?

Perilagu Khan | Jan 22, 2013 08:52 AM

A Balinese recipe I'm preparing tomorrow night calls for fish to be fried in peanut oil. I was going to buy some peanut oil but balked at a price easily five times as high as vegetable oil. Is peanut oil really so superior as to justify the price? Is the difference in the final product on your plate really that pronounced?
