    Goes with everything! I always have a jar on my dining table at home. Great garnish for Asian soups, noodles, salads, etc.

    Units: US | Metric

    • shallot (as many as your frying pan can hold)
    • cooking oil, for deep frying
    • salt


    1. 1
      Slice the shallots VERY THINLY-- cut them in half and julienne your way through-- Heat oil in frying pan-- chuck the shallots in the very hot oil until they turn brown and crunchy-- be sure that there's significant colour change but careful that they don't burn!
    2. 2
      Drain the shallots, place on a plate over paper towel to take out excess oil, and sprinkle with salt.
    3. 3
      When they cool, store in an airtight jar.

      These are so easy to make and are delicious in a salad! I think they would be good sprinkled on a lot of veggie dishes as well. Thanks skwattink aynjull!

      I was out of my regular crispy onion flakes and spotted your recipe - Very easy to make - the trick is to wait til they brown but not any further. I used a mixture of shallots & red onion - only had 1/4" oil on the pan but I only made a small amount Thanks skwattink aynjull

      Great to have these on hand. I used to buy them in a packet when in Malaysia. They were just great on my bean sprout stir fry. Thanks for reminding me about these onions.
