Ginger Scallion Sauce

  • Author: Chelsea at Do You Even Paleo
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: about 1 cup sauce 1x
  • Category: Condiments
  • Method: stovetop


  • 6 tablespoons minced fresh ginger (no need to peel it)
  • 1 heaping tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 bunch scallions (aka green onions), thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups sliced)
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil


  1. Combine the ginger, garlic, scallions, dried chile, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, and salt in a heat-proof container. Use a larger container than you think - since you’re pouring hot oil over everything it will bubble up.
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan on medium-low. Once the oil is hot and has started gently steaming (about 5-10 minutes), pour it over the ginger and scallion mixture. It will bubble up and crackle but quickly subside. Let cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Drizzle on chicken, pork, vegetables or whatever your heart desires!


Tip for chopping up ginger: slice it into quarter-thin rounds, stack a few rounds and slice into thin strips, then turn 90 degrees and mince.
