Parsley Oil

After years of watching the TV show Iron Chef on the Food Network, I decided to spruce up my plates a little bit and I have always noticed the chefs making colorful oils.  I was doing some research on what oil I could make for a scallop dish and came up with parsley oil.


  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley…leaves only no stems
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


  1. bring a saucepan of salted water to boil
  2. prepare an ice water bath, (water and ice cubes in a bowl)
  3. once water is boiling, place parsley leaves in and boil for 20 seconds
  4. remove parsley with slotted spoon and place in ice bath to stop cooking
  5. remove from ice bath place on paper towels
  6. place oil and parsley in blender and blend until parsley is broken down
  7. strain mixture with cheesecloth or a fine mesh strainer
  8. use the back of a spoon to press parsley and drain all of the liquid out

This parsley oil not only looks amazing when plated, it adds a depth of flavor to any dish without being too heavy or thick!  I will definitely be experimenting with different oils from now on.
