Crispy fried shallots make a for a fun, savory garnish to a green bean casserole, salad or steak.
Add the oil then set the burner to Power 5 (medium). Once a thermometer in the oil reads 325°F/165°C, switch to Temperature Control and set the temperature to 365°F/185°C. You will then be ready to fry. Keep in mind that this step may take 7-9 minutes. Chef's note: In Guided Recipes, the system will handle all of this for you!
While the oil preheats, mix the dry ingredients until fully combined.
Toss until fully coated.
Using a fine mesh strainer, shake any excess flour off the shallot rings.
Add enough shallots without overcrowding the pot. Fry for 3- 4 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally with a slotted spoon. While they fry, prepare a plate or tray with paper towels and set aside.
Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Continue frying the extra shallot rings, then turn off the heat.
Use as a garnish immediately or transfer to an air tight container if reserving for later use.
