Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4


  • Fryer


  • 1 bunch of shallots
  • milk for dredging
  • flour for dredging
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Simply take a bunch of shallots, peel them, and slice them thinly crosswise.
  • Take some all-purpose flour seasoned with salt and pepper. Dip the shallot slices in milk and then dredge in the flour. Place them in a strainer and bang off the excess flour.
  • Drop them in 350°F vegetable oil. They will cook quickly so keep an eye on them.
  • As soon as they’re golden brown, remove them from the oil, drain, and sprinkle with additional salt.


For another delicious alternative, broil halved shallots right in the pan with your steak. They will pick up some of the steak’s juices as well as bring some of their own flavor to the party.
