Ginger, scallion (green onions) and garlic are one of the most common ingredients in Asian cooking. Many of our dishes use this three herbs combination. With these three ingredients I like to make it into a dipping sauce for my poached chicken/Hainanese Chicken Rice. You can even mix this sauce to your noodles, salad,and potatoes salad or as topping for steamed fish. This is what I called the Asian pesto.For the recipe of Poached Chicken kindly refer here
Ingredients for the dipping sauce:
1/4 cup finely grated ginger
1/2 cup of finely chopped scallion/green onions
1 cloves garlic – finely chopped
3 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Put the ginger, scallion and garlic in the bowl with deep side. Add in the salt, pepper and sesame oil. Stir well and set it aside.
2. In a small saucepan, heat up the oil until smoking hot. Pour the hot oil into the ginger mix. Using a chopstick or wooden spoon mix everything together.
3. Ginger, scallion oil can be stored, covered, in the fridge for about a week
