In a large pot or deep fryer heat peanut oil until piece of shallot dropped in oil sizzles. Add shallots, stirring constantly, and fry until crisp and lightly browned. Remove with a slotted spoon or spider to drain on paper towels. Add salt to taste and toss. Let cool to room temperature and store in an airtight container for up to a week.
