Roasted Pumpkin Seed Oil Vinaigrette

Yield 1/2 cup
Because Austrian roasted pumpkin seed oil, a current favorite in American restaurant kitchens, becomes acrid when it's heated, it's best not to cook it.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon roasted pumpkin seed oil (see Note)
  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced jalapeño
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • Pinch each of salt and freshly ground pepper

How to Make It

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl.

  2. Make Ahead: The vinaigrette can be refrigerated overnight. Serve at room temperature.

  3. Serve With: Grilled shrimp; shrimp or vegetable dumplings; chicken salad; avocado-tomato salad; boiled rice noodles

  4. Notes: Roasted pumpkin seed oil is available at specialty food stores.
