      HOW TO/SMARTCUT: Shallow-frying Tips

      • Shallow-frying refers to a method of cooking food that’s only partly submerged in fat, so it must be flipped during the cooking time.
      • Use moderate to high heat so that foods do not absorb oil and leave food greasy.
      • Make sure foods are dry to prevent hot oil from splattering.
      • Use a high-sided pan, and never fill a pan more than two-thirds full to prevent oil from bubbling over.
      • Cook food in batches; do not overcrowd the pan so the oil temperature is maintained.
      • Transfer cooked food to paper towel to drain excess oil.
