Substitute for Asian chili oil?

arielleeve | Mar 19, 2012 06:20 PM

I'm making a recipe for soba noodles with a scallion ginger sauce. The recipe calls for chili oil (just a few teaspoons). Since I'm making this tonight, I don't have the time to make any chili oil from scratch and I don't have any on hand. I have some huy fong chili garlic sauce, I was thinking maybe I could use a little of that mixed into a neutral oil of some sort? I know it wouldn't be the same as chili oil, but I think the flavors would still go with the recipe. Any thoughts?
