Crisps de cherovia

Image

  • 4 pounds parsnips, peeled
  • Vegetable oil, for deep-frying (about 8 cups)
  • Coarse salt, for sprinkling
  • Mild smoked paprika (also called pimenton), for sprinkling
  1. Shave long, thin strips from parsnips with a peeler (preferably swivel), turning to use all sides. (Reserve ends and cores for another use, such as stock or soup.) Toss parsnip strips by hand to separate.

  2. Heat 3 inches oil in a heavy medium-size pot until it registers 365 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer. Add parsnip strips to the oil in small handfuls (do not crowd), turning gently with a wire skimmer, until pale gold and crisp, about 45 seconds. Transfer chips to paper towels to drain, and sprinkle with salt. (Return oil to 365 degrees between batches.) Before serving, sprinkle with smoked paprika.
