Yield: 4 servings


8 scallions, ends trimmed and thinly sliced on a bias

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon mirin rice wine

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

½-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled (use the edge of a teaspoon to scrape off the skin) and grated


1. In a medium bowl, place the sliced scallions. Cover with cold water and set aside for 10 minutes. Drain through a colander and place the scallions in the middle of a kitchen towel. Wring out the water, unwrap the towel and transfer the scallions to a few sheets of paper towels. Air dry for 30 minutes.
