Shallot

A petite member of the onion family. Shallots are formed in the same way as garlic, with a head made up of several cloves. A thin, papery skin of reddish brown to yellow-brown covers off-white meat that is tinged with green or purple. Shallots have a mild, delicate flavor and tender texture.

Recipes

  1. Sherry-Shallot Vinaigrette

    Soaking shallot slices in vinegar makes them deliciously pickle-like. For a tarter flavor, let the shallots soak for up to 2 hours.

  2. Sauteed Flounder with Orange-Shallot Sauce

    Look for Pacific Flounder. Its delicate flavor is wonderfully balanced by the sweet and savory combination of orange, shallot and mustard. A large nonstick skillet is highly recommended. Otherwise, cook the fillets in two batches, using 1 1/2 teaspoons oil per batch.

  3. Apple-Shallot Roasted Turkey

    Roasting the herb-rubbed turkey with apples and shallots is the secret to flavorful meat. Extra shallots in the roasting pan give the gravy a rich, caramelized shallot flavor.

  1. Spring Pea Green Curry with Black Cod and Strawberry – Channeling My Inner Spa Chef

    Thu, 16 Apr 2015

    I’ve always loved green curries, but until a recent visit to Al’s Place , I’d never thought of using fresh, sweet peas as the base. It was amazing, and after only a few bites I knew I'd steal this idea and make it my own. Sorry, Al. Their version featured pickled strawberries, but I decided to try a different approach, and used diced, fresh berries instead. I didn’t use any palm sugar or coconut milk, so the sweetness they provided paired perfectly with the brightly seasoned sauce. As I mentioned in the video, I used a jarred curry paste, Thai Kitchen Green Curry Paste, to be exact, and it works just fine. It contains green chili, garlic, lemongrass, galangal, salt, shallot , pepper, coriander, cumin, and kaffir lime, which is pretty much what you’d grind up to make a fresh green curry. Next time I’ll make the paste from scratch just to see how much better it is, but I have to admit, the trade-off in time and effort is pretty attractive. Speaking of attractive, this lovely bowl of spring goodness sure would look good on your table, so I hope you give this spring pea green curry a try soon. Enjoy! Ingredients for 4 appetizer-sized portions: 1 yellow onion, diced 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste 3 tablespoons green curry paste, plus more to taste 2 cups chicken broth 1 pound trimmed sugar snap peas, snow peas, or English peas 1 tablespoon fish sauce 1 pound boneless black cod (aka butterfish or sablefish), but into eight 2-oz pieces, skin scored 1/8 th inch deep 4 tablespoons diced strawberry 2 teaspoons mint chiffonade
