Simply SatedCrispy Shallots are incredibly easy to make, and it only takes a few extra minutes in the kitchen to create these crunchy, tasty, tiny bites. You might make more than needed, and save the rest to use throughout the following days.

Here you go: Peel, slice, fry, drain and season the sliced shallots. Ta-da!!

Simply SatedThe more I learn about cooking, the more I realize how important it is to do the detailed things that dramatically improve the final results. Here are just a few things I do to add flavor elements to my favorite dishes:

  1. Use fresh, instead of dried, herbs in many dishes. Hardy herbs (rosemary, thyme, oregano) should be added early to the cooking process and delicate herbs (basil, cilantro, parsley) toward the end.   Ex: Perfect Roast Chicken. Serving this chicken with fresh rosemary butter takes it to gourmet level.
  2. Use fresh citrus juice and zest for a delicious punch of flavor. Ex: Grilled Pineapple with Lime Zest.  The added sprinkling of lime zest gives pineapple a lovely zing. It makes this simple side dish one that would work for any occasion.
  3. Sprinkle coarse Demerara or sanding sugar on quick breads, muffins or cookies before baking to add a professional look and slight crunch. Ex: Orange-Spice Banana Bread & Muffins (coming soon).

Simply SatedLike I stated earlier, “Good things come in small packages.” I guess, I have always liked that particular saying because I’m 5’2” tall. Since this is my blog, and I can do what I want, I think I’ll change the words to better reflect me, “Great things come in small packages.”

Enjoy!
