Watch how to make it here
Crispy, sweet, and full of flavor, fried shallots are a staple topping in Vietnamese cuisine. This can be made in 10 minutes and enjoyed throughout the week.
- During the frying process, there should be enough oil to cover the shallots. One cup of avocado oil should be sufficient but feel free to add a bit more as needed.
- It is crucial to monitor the shallots around the 4-5 minute mark. If it begins to turn light golden brown, remove it immediately as it will continue cooking.
- Store any leftover fried shallots in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week. Save the oil used to fry the shallots in a separate airtight container for stir-frying or another purpose.
