  3. Strain shallot mixture through a fine mesh sieve over the ginger-pepper flake mixture. Let garlic and shallot pieces cool in sieve before stirring back into the infused oil. Pour into a glass container with a top and chill until ready to use.

This is delicious. I couldn’t find mushroom powder, so I pulverized a dried shiitake mushroom. This was delicious on an omelette. Thank you for the recipe.
