Wake up bland food with a dollop or two of this fresh and savory Ginger Scallion Sauce!
This super simple Ginger Scallion sauce is a typical Asian condiment that is served with boiled chicken and bokchoy. It will add a ton of flavor to any dish – steamed veggies, baked fish, omelettes and so much more. Lately, I’ve been eating it with some pan seared shrimp and mixing it into my Turmeric Garlic Rice!
Pro Tip: If you are having a hard time grating fresh ginger, throw it in the freezer the day before. It will be so much easier to grate frozen!
Ginger Scallion Sauce
- 1 cup scallions chopped
- 2 tbsp ginger peeled and grated
- 1 tsp coarse sea salt
- 1/4 cup olive oil or avocado oil
Combine scallions, ginger and sea salt in a glass bowl.
Place your oil of choice in a small saucepot.
Turn on heat to medium. Let the oil heat up until it just begins to lightly smokes (about 1-2 mins).
Turn off heat and slowly pour the hot oil on top of your ginger scallion mixture. NOTE: Be VERY careful of the hot oil.
The mixture will sizzle once combined with the oil and wait for it to stop before mixing the sauce.
Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
