Ingredients

  • 3–4 shallots, halved and thinly sliced and pieces separated
  • 1/4 cup cassava flour (TRY: Otto’s Naturals Cassava Flour)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil

Preparation

  1. To a large bowl, add shallots, cassava and salt. Toss to combine.
  2. In a large skillet on medium, heat oil. Drop 1 shallot slice into the pan to make sure it sizzles.
  3. Add as many shallot pieces as can fit in the pan without overlapping. Cook in batches if necessary. Turn shallots when golden on the bottom, 5 minutes. Once golden, turn and cook until crispy and golden on the other side, 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer shallots to a paper towel–lined plate and set aside. (Note: If you do a second batch, wipe out pan and add fresh oil.)

TIP: Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Use to garnish any hot, savory recipe to taste.
