Delicate onions turn crunchy and sweet when dipped in batter and fried. For this recipe it’s best to use thin scallions.
- 1 cup white wine
- 1 cup flour
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 4 bunches of scallions, trimmed
- Vegetable oil
- Whisk wine into flour in a bowl until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
- Halve scallions crosswise. Dip into batter, and fry in hot vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat until crisp, 2–3 minutes. Drain on paper towels, and salt generously.
