You know fried shallots? Now pack them in oil with salt and a touch of sugar and you have yourself the best noodle topper in the game.
Fried Shallots are a common ingredient in Chinese and Taiwanese dishes (try putting them in your Zha Jiang Mian and Lu Rou Fan), but this is the first fried shallot we’ve seen packed with their oil. And why not? Shallot oil is an important Taiwanese ingredient in its own right, used to make Shallot Oil Noodles and as a quick seasoning trick for weeknight stir fries. There’s a popular version in Taiwan made with goose oil, this one is vegan with the same effect.
I know we're all about exquisite home cooking here at Yun Hai, but trust us that the best use for this is over your leftover rice. You cooked all day yesterday, why sweat it today?

About DongHe Oil
Dong He Oil is a traditional producer of cold-pressed oils and stone-ground sesame pastes located in Chiayi, Taiwan. The oil mill was founded 100 years ago in 1921, as the original producer of cooking oil for the Dongshi township in Chiayi county. Operating in the original wood-beamed, brick building with much of the original machinery, Dong He upholds the same traditional craft principles that distinguishes their products from competitors. They continue to produce cold-pressed sesame, peanut and camellia seed oils today, and have added stone-ground sesame pastes, peanut butters, and a line of specialty sauces featuring house ingredients and family recipes.
