Step 1: Frying the Herbs• 1/2 cup fresh basil, sage or parsley leaves
• 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
To fry the herbs, place the oil into a small fry pan or pot and heat over medium heat.
Make sure the herbs are clean and thoroughly dry.
Once the oil is between 275 to 300ºF (or 135 to 150ºC), fry the herbs. Using a slotted spoon, lower the herbs into the oil. Be careful of any splattering oil. Fry them for about 5 to 10 seconds or so, just until they become even in color. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain.
Fried herbs can be used to garnish a variety of dishes.
