I love garlic so when I saw this recipe I had to try it. It's simple, garlicky and spicy.
Pickled garlic has a milder flavor than fresh garlic which makes it perfect for those who dislike the pungent smell and flavor of fresh garlic.
This recipe uses simple ingredients: pickled garlic, thyme, sriracha and chili flakes.
I omitted the chili flakes since sriracha is already very spicy but you can add them if you enjoy the intense heat.
As I mentioned, this recipe uses pickled garlic, you can find this at any store where the specialty conserved good are. This comes in a glass jar and it's garlic that has been sitting in a vinegar concoction to pickle. It also goes by the name of marinated garlic.
You can definitely make your own pickled garlic at home using fresh cloves of garlic, vinegar, salt and pepper. The only thing you need is time and patience to let your garlic pickle. The longer it sits the better it will taste. But at least 2-3 days of pickling are required.
To add more flavor and depth, thyme is a great dried herb to use in this recipe but you can use any dried herbs that you have handy to infuse the garlic with flavor.
Pickled garlic recipe is a great addition to seafood dishes, salads and pizzas! But if you are a garlic lover you might enjoy eating it as a snack on its own.
If you don't like it too spicy, you can reserve some of the pickle juice and add it and reduce the amount of sriracha.
