Ginger and scallion oil

THIS CLASSIC CONDIMENT IS TRADITIONALLY SERVED WITH POACHED OR HAINAN CHICKEN. IT’S ALSO WONDERFUL ON STEAMED RICE.

Makes about 1/2 Cup

Ginger and scallion oil

Ingredients

  • 2-3 scallions, trimmed and finely chopped (use both the white and green parts)
  • 1.5 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup peanut or sunflower oil
  • Big pinch of sea salt

Recipe Preparation

Put chopped scallions, grated ginger, and sea salt into a heat-proof bowl or sterilized jar if you are making extra to keep.

Heat oil in a small saucepan until almost smoking.

Carefully pour all the hot oil into the bowl/jar, stir until well combined. Serve at room temperature.

Be VERY careful when pouring the hot oil into the bowl, as it creates a large amount of bubbles when you pour it into the wet ingredients.
