Ginger Scallion Sauce
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.
Servings: 1 cup of sauce
- 5 stalks green onions/scallions (approximately 1 packed cup, finely chopped)
- 5-6 slices ginger (approximately 2 tablespoons, finely chopped or grated)
- ½ teaspoon salt (plus more to taste, if you like it saltier)
- 7 tablespoons oil (avocado, peanut, canola, grape, sunflower, vegetable, corn - do not use olive oil)
Grate the ginger, or finely chop it. Try to chop it as fine as possible so you don't bite into chunks of ginger when serving.
Finely mince the green onions.Use the whole green onion, the greens, and the whites but discard the very end of the white where the roots are.
Combine the ginger, green onions and salt into a small bowl and mix together
Heat up the oil in a small saucepan 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).Alternatively, you can also use a wooden chopstick or a wooden spoon handle to test the heat of the oil by dunking it into the oil. If the oil bubbles, the oil is hot enough.
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.)
Mix everything together and it's done!
- This sauce can keep for up to 2 weeks and should be stored in the refrigerator when not being used.
- Any type of oil works for this recipe, but a heavier flavored oil (like olive oils) will overpower the flavor of the sauce so avoid using that if possible. I like to use avocado oil, vegetable oil, peanut oil, canola oil, or corn oil but avocado oil is my go-to because of its high smoking point.
- To keep things traditional and simple I use salt to give this sauce its savoriness. You can also use soy sauce as well in place of salt.
- Garlic (Optional) - Although this is not a traditional ingredient in this ginger scallion oil, adding 1 clove of grated garlic will also give you some wonderful extra flavors as well.
