Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Thinly slice the Shallot (1) and fry in a deep fryer or large pot with Frying Oil (as needed) at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) until golden brown. Remove and let dry on a paper towel-lined plate.
Step 2
Prepare the Garlic (3 cloves) and fry until golden in the same oil. Remove and place the toasted garlic on a paper towel-lined plate.
Step 3
Combine Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (2 Tbsp) , toasted garlic, fried shallots, and Brown Sugar (2 1/2 cups) in a mixing bowl and toss well. Place the chili sugar mixture into a room temperature heavy-bottomed pot or pan.
Step 4
Cook over medium-high heat with a wooden spoon until sugar begins to caramelize. DO NOT USE YOUR HAND TO TOUCH SUGAR! It will leave a bad burn.
Step 5
When sugar takes on a “granola” like look and feel remove from fire immediately onto a paper lined plate and allow to cool at room temperature, never refrigerate.
Step 6
Thinly slice the Red Jalapeño Pepper (1) . Deseed if you want less spice.
Step 7
Fry Cauliflower (2 cups) and Chile de Arbol (4) in a deep fryer or large pot with frying oil at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Fry until cauliflower is honey-brown and drain well.
Step 8
Once golden brown, place the cauliflowers and chili de arbol into a bowl lined with paper towels and pat dry.
Step 9
Sprinkle in the chili sugar mix. Barely warm until slightly melted and fragrant. Add the Scallions (1 Tbsp) , Fresh Cilantro (1 pinch) , and Italian Flat-Leaf Parsley (1 pinch) . Season with Salt (1 pinch) and Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch) . Gently toss together. Plate and serve.
