Taro Nest and serve at once. TARO NEST: Peel the taro root and slice into
thin slices. Using a razor-sharp knife or slicing cleaver, finely
julienne. The shreds of taro should look like straw potatoes. Pour enough
peanut oil into a large, heated wok to deep-fry the taro. Heat to 350 F,
using a deep-fat thermometer. Dip a skimmer basket or bird's nest in the
hot oil to prevent the shreds of taro from sticking to it when they
deep-fry. Layer the inside of the basket with the julienned taro. If using
the skimmer basket, place a metal bowl on top to hold taro in place. Gently
lower the basket into the hot oil & deep-fry until the taro turns golden
brown. Remove the basket and take off the metal bowl. Use a long-tined
fork to loosen the taro nest. Carefully lift from basket & drain of paper
towels. Sprinkle lightly w/salt and keep warm in low oven, if necessary.
