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.



  • 5 stalks green onions/scallions (approximately 1/2 cup, finely chopped)
  • 56 slices ginger (approximately 2 tablespoons, finely chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (plus more to taste, if you like it saltier)
  • 7 tablespoons flavorless oil (peanut, canola, grape, sunflower, vegetable, corn – try not to use olive oil)


  1. Grate the ginger, or finely chop it. The finer the better so you don’t bite into chunks of ginger.
  2. Chop the green onions finely. Use the whole green onion, the greens, and the whites but discard the very end of the white where the roots are.
  3. Combine the ginger, green onions and salt into a small bowl and mix together
  4. Heat up the oil in a small pot until almost smoking (add a small piece of green onion into it to test if it’s hot enough, if it sizzles the oil, it’s good to go).
  5. Pour the hot oil into the ginger onion mixture. (You should hear and see it sizzling. If you don’t, the oil wasn’t hot enough – re-heat the oil until it is hot again and pour it onto the green onions.)
  6. Mix everything together and it’s done! ?


  • This sauce can keep for up to 1 week and should be stored in the refrigerator when not being used.
  • Stronger flavored oils like olive oil can overpower the flavor of the sauce
