2 cups vegetable oil

1 large leek

1 cup cornstarch

1 cup all-purpose flour

Fine sea salt


  1. In a medium sauce pot heat oil to 350 degrees F.
  2. Clean and julienne leeks. Sift cornstarch and flour together. Dust leeks in flour/cornstarch and fry until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Drain on a paper towel, season with salt. See Cook's Note.

Cook’s Note

Be sure to stay close when frying leeks because they will burn quickly.
