Fried Arugula

  • Yield: 4 side servings


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 cups arugula


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat until hot and smoking, for about 2 minutes. Drop the arugula into the oil and move away quickly because the oil will spit and spatter for a second or two. Stir-fry the arugula for 30 seconds, remove from the oil with a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately
