Ginger Scallion Dipping Sauce is typically found as a condiment at many Chinese restaurants. My Chinese best friend was kind enough to share her authentic recipe for Ginger Scallion Dipping Sauce. It is a simple dipping sauce complementing a variety of food like chicken, noodles or seafood.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 Shallot
  • 2.5 inches of ginger (3 tablespoons of minced ginger)
  • 3 scallions
  • 1 cup of vegetable oil (canola or olive oil)
  • 2-3 teaspoons of salt

Recipe Steps:

  • Wash the scallions and let dry. Once the scallions are dry enough, finely slice them.
  • Peel the ginger and then finely mince the ginger.
  • Mix the ginger and scallion together in a small bowl.
  • Add 2-3 teaspoons of salt into the ginger-scallion mixture.
  • Use your hand to mash the scallion, ginger and salt together then set the mixture aside.
  • Preparing the oil:
  • Peel the shallot and then dice the shallot.
  • In a pot, heat 1 cup of vegetable, canola or olive oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, put in the dice shallots.
  • When the shallots turn a golden brown, turn off the heat.
  • Slowly scoop the oil onto the ginger-scallion mixture (omitting the cooked shallots) and mix it together with a spoon. Let it cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  • Great seasoning for:
  • Hainan Chicken (steamed or boiled chicken)
  • Corn on the cob
