  • 3 shallots thinly sliced horizontally or lenghwise 1/8" thick
  • 1-2 cups canola oil or peanut oil depending how large the pan is. *The oil should be approximately 1” deep in the pan.
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat oil to 275F (med-low heat) – use a deep-fry thermometer.
  2. Add sliced shallots and cook until golden in color, stir frequently and watch continuously.
  3. Remove the shallots when almost all are golden. *The hot oil will continue to cook the shallots even after they are removed from the oil.
  4. Use a slotted spoon to transfer onions to a paper towel-lined plate.
  5. The shallots will continue to crisp while cooling.
  6. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and other desired seasonings.
  7. Enjoy!
