Grilled Scallions with Sesame Oil

Posted

Serves 2 – recipe from Farmer John’s Cookbook

The intense heat of the grill or broiler caramelizes the natural sugars in the scallions as they cook, making them exquisitely sweet and tender. Toasted sesame oil gives them a special nutty flavor. Serve these whole as a side dish or slice for a garnish to enhance the rest of your meal. (A friend of the farm)

8 scallions, trimmed to 5 inch pieces, cut in half lengthwise
Toasted sesame oil
Black pepper
Salt

Preheat broiler or lightly oiled grill to medium-high heat. Arrange the scallions on a shallow baking sheet or piece of aluminum foil. Pour a little toasted sesame oil into a small bowl. Use a pastry brush to completely coat the scallions with a thin layer of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place the scallions under the broiler or on the grill and broil until they are golden brown on all sides, 3 to 5 minutes.
