  3. Slice the bacon into thin ¼ inch wide strips or batons.
  4. Heat the cooking oil in a wok or a deep-sided frying pan.
  5. Add the bacon to the wok or pan and cook until crisp over a high heat.
  6. Add the minced shallots to wok or pan and sauté, uncovered, over a medium-high heat until softened.
