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


  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. Drain the shallots, place on a plate over paper towel to take out excess oil, and sprinkle with salt.
  3. When they cool, store in an airtight jar.
