What is a shallot and where do I find it in grocery store?

In most recipes, you can use any other kind of onion (red, white, green). In North America, the word shallot is sometimes used for green onions (called échalotte in French-speaking parts Canada and Cajun parts of USA -- in such places, the real shallot is called "French Onion" or French shallot.

it's an onion. Venture into the vegetable isle.

It's a smaller, usually more aromatic onion. Vegetable section. Best the onions usually. If you see them though, buy echalion shallots, they're much nicer, more aromatic and flavoursome, but a bit dearer.

It's like a green onion. Delicious and available in some stores in the produce section..

it's related to garlic and looks like that, but more of a tan color.
Where in the store? varies with store. Look near the garlic.
