How to Dice a Shallot

Shallots…those little bitty onion thingy’s are probably under used by most cooks.

While similar in taste to an onion, I think they have a bit more “refined” flavor.  Plus their size is pretty convenient when you don’t need a full onion.  I use shallots in most of my sauces, and certainly in salsas, relishes, and a ton of vinaigrettes.

In this short cooking video, I demonstrate how I peel and dice a shallot.  The technique is similar to dicing an onion, but the size of the shallot makes it a bit tougher.  But making sure you’ve got strong knife skills helps cut down on your prep time, and gets you cooking faster – so a little practice is worth it.

Enjoy!!
