2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped red chili pepper and minced garlic, and sauté for a few minutes until fragrant.
3. Add the salami pieces to the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the salami starts to release its oils and becomes slightly crispy.
4. Remove the skillet from the heat and let the salami mixture cool slightly.
5. Transfer the salami mixture to a food processor and add the smoked paprika, dried oregano, salt, and pepper.
6. Pulse the mixture until you reach your desired consistency. If you prefer a smoother spread, pulse for longer.
7. Taste the nduja and adjust the seasonings according to your preference. Add more salt, pepper, or spices if needed.
8. Transfer the spicy salami spread nduja to a sterilized jar or airtight container and refrigerate until ready to use.
9. Serve the nduja spread with toasted bread, crackers, or as a topping for sandwiches and pizzas.
