What to do with oak smoked rapeseed oil?

Oak smoked oil can be used to liven up dishes in many different ways. Whether you're making a dressing, marinating or using it as a dipping oil the oak smoked flavour will add a huge difference to your dish.

Here are three different ways how we use the oak smoked oil to liven up our dishes
