A quick ginger scallion sauce made with  4 ingredients that is full of flavour and honestly one of the greatest sauces you’ll ever try.

As a kid, I used to put this stuff on everything, especially plain rice.
It’s salty, gingery, oniony and delicious. What’s odd is I was not really a fan of ginger but I don’t know what it is but this sauce transforms everything to be delicious. I’m serious!

For the oil, you can use any light tasting oil like peanut oil and grape seed oils. Do not use olive oil. Olive oil has a very strong flavour which doesn’t do well in this sauce and masks the flavours of it.

 

 

PUTTING IT TOGETHER

This sauce is very simple to make and literally takes 5 minutes.

Here are the steps:

  1. Chop the green onions (scallions) finely
  2. Chop ginger up roughly and put it in a food processor until it is very fine. If you do not have a food processor, you can finely chop it by hand with a knife. The finer the better unless you like eating chunks of ginger.
  3. Combine the green onions (scallions) and ginger and add the salt and mix.
  4. On the stove, heat up the oil in a frying pan or pot until it is hot. (Viscosity of the oil will be very runny and almost smoking as well.) The oil must be hot, else it will not ‘cook’ the sauce.
  5. Once it’s hot, carefully pour the oil into the onion and ginger mixture. You should hear a sizzle. If you don’t, the oil is not hot enough – heat the oil up hotter and try again.
  6. Mix it up, and enjoy on anything!

  • Any type of meat, especially roasted or grilled meats
  • Congee

  1. I LOVE THIS SAUCE. normally my family adds garlic too, but otherwise it’s the same (: i grew up having this over boiled chicken and crab and rice, but it’s definitely better over crab and rice than it is over chicken (;

    1. GARLIC! That’s brilliant! I need to try that! 😀 I have never had it with crab before, woo what a way to broaden my tastebuds! 😀 haha and I SO have to agree with you there – it’s better over rice than chicken. haha! 🙂

  2. Yes! This sauce is awesome! We usually add garlic as well and a lot of salt (my family loves salt, lol). I have mostly had it with boiled chicken with a little bit of oyster sauce too! Yum!

    1. Yes! That was how I had it growing up too! Lots of salt with boiled chicken and oyster sauce! 😀 I never tried it with garlic that sounds like it would be fantastic!
