Argan oil use in cooking
Argan oil is a gourmet oil that is highly valued in fine dining. It is mainly used in Moroccan cuisine, but it can also be used as an ingredient in various international dishes.
Here are some ways you can use argan oil in gourmet cooking:
Salads: Argan oil is a great dressing for salads. Mix it with lemon juice, honey and spices to make a delicious dressing.
Soups and Stews: Use argan oil to enhance soups and stews and give them a nutty flavor.
Meat and Fish: Argan oil can be used as a marinade for meat and fish, or as a finishing oil to enhance flavor.
Dips and Sauces: Argan oil can also be used in dips and sauces like hummus, baba ghanoush or tahini to give them an extra flavor.
Desserts: Argan oil can also be used in desserts like cakes, cookies, and puddings to give them a unique nutty flavor.
It is important to note that argan oil is not suitable for frying or cooking at high temperatures due to its low smoke point. Instead, use it as a finishing oil in cold dishes or when cooking at low temperatures.
