Crispy Air Fryer Shallots
These tiny, crispy air fryer shallots are one of my favourite toppings to add to savoury dishes. Sprinkle them onto anything and everything, or enjoy them on their own as a crispy, crunchy snack!
Utterly crispy and caramelised in the air fryer, you can skip the deep fryer and all of the oil when it comes to these crispy little onion bits.
Guilt-free and flavourful, these thin, light and crispy air-fried shallots are the ideal topping for almost any savoury dish.
Sprinkle liberally as a topping, or nibble straight out of the bowl as a crispy treat (we won’t tell). Crumble them on top of salads and flatbreads, curries, or even dips. They will last up to a week stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
This recipe requires only 3 ingredients and 30 minutes of prep and cook time. Simply slice the shallots, toss with oil and coat with flour, air fry until crispy, and voila! Deeply caramelised, crispy shallots.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why use shallots instead of onions?
We use banana shallots in this recipe. These long, thin shallots will yield onion rings that are the perfect size for garnishing. If you can’t find shallots, you can use baby onions or halved white onions.
