    1       c            Vegetable oil
   Pomelo looks like a thick-skinned, oversized grapefruit, and it is sweeter
   than the normal grapefruit.
   PEEL AND SEPARATE pomelo segments. Remove and discard membranes. Gently
   flake the flesh. If using grapefruit, drain excess juice. Chill. In large
   bowl, combine pomelo and shredded chicken. Mix together the chopped red
   chili with fish sauce, sugar and lime juice; toss with chicken mixture.
   Arrange on a bed of lettuce, garnish with coriander leaves, peanuts, and 2
   teaspoons of the Crisp Fried Shallot Flakes.
   CRISP FRIED SHALLOT FLAKES: Slice shallots into thin slices. Be sure they
   are all the same thinness to ensure even cooking. Heat a pan with the
   vegetable oil over medium heat. Add shallots and fry slowly until browned
   and crisp, about 5 to 10 minutes. The moisture in the shallots should be
   completely cooked out. Drain on paper towel. Stored in an air-tight
   container, the shallots will keep several weeks.
