Cooking tips for how to make Chinese ginger scallion sauce:

  • Chop the ginger to finely minced. Personally, I like to use a chopper. Not only is it faster, but also ginger is finely minced.
  • Put minced ginger, green onion into a bowl and add salt.
  • Heat up some oil in a pan. After, pour the hot oil over and mix well. Be careful with the hot oil, especially when you pour over green onion and ginger. If the oil is not hot enough, it cannot cook the green onion and ginger. Also, the flavor will not come out.
