Scallion Sauce

Scallion Chinese Sauce

Chinese Shallot Sauce, is the sauce to prepare Shallot Noodles. To prepare them, you only need Chinese Egg Noodles, the sauce and the spring onions and shallots used to prepare them.

It is a sauce based on an oil flavoured through a slow frying of spring onions, shallots and spices such as cinnamon, star anise, bay leaf and ginger. Once flavoured, just add soy sauce, oyster sauce and sugar to cook for a couple of minutes and voilà! You will have a nice jar of delicious Scallion Chinese Sauce that you can not only use for Shallot Noodles but also to make various Lo Mein dishes, make sautéed rice.

Personally, I also experimented with it to give a little more flavour in a quick soup, with ravioli, with white rice and steamed salmon… It goes really well with everything, now as soon as it finishes I immediately prepare some more. Try it and let me know with which dishes you tried it!
