In a deep frying pan or pot over medium high, heat 1 1/2 inchs of canola oil to 325F. Add sliced shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden in colour, about 10 minutes. (Tip: shallots will turn from golden brown to burnt easily – keep a close eye.) Transfer to paper towel-lined sheet pan to drain. Sprinkle with sea salt. Let cool completely.

Toast rye bread and immediately rub lightly with garlic clove. Top each slice with sliced avocado, sprinkle with salt, hemp hearts, sesame seeds and torn herbs. Top with freshly cracked black pepper, fried shallots and sprouts.
