I love this garnish as it adds height to a dish, it’s easy to make and you’re damn right they taste good! The key here is to thinly slice the onions and I use my mandoline. Serve with a steak or any other meat & potatoes dish or even a big bowl for friends to snack on. Crispy fried onions – easy to make and here’s how:
Crispy Fried Onions
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
fine sea salt
2 tsp. of corn starch
oil for frying
- Peel your onion and then caredully slice it with your mandoline as thinly as possible. Tear the onions so that you have individual strands and place in a bowl with some salt and the corn starch and toss with your hands until well-coated. Shake off excess corn starch.
- Heat some oil in your fryer (about 2 inches in the pot) and place the onions in the hot oil and fry until golden and crisp. Remove the onions with a slotted spoon and place on paper-lined plate. Sprinkle a bit of salt and toss and allow to cool. Serve as garnish with any meat and potatoes dish (like Salisbury Steak).
