Mild Grill Porn - Grilled Scallions - Page 2

post #16 of 26
I used to to grill green onions like this but always liked to soak them overnight (or a good 8 hours) in tepid water. Toss in marinade (olive oil, salt, pepper, sometimes dried basil...yeah yeah not fresh). Kept the onions from getting too dry from grill.

However some friends in the food industry mentioned that if you soak overnight in orange juice that it cuts out the onion sharpness.

I just had some scallions on top of silken tofu with some soy sauce and juice from some yuzus that I smuggled back from Hawaii. All that topped with grated ginger.

And the poster above me is right - you gotta at least cover the scallions with oil.

Do you guys ever grill leeks? To me, leeks are so much better than scallions on the grill.

I wanna hear more about that ice-shocked scallion with salt and pepper, sounds tasty.

I brushed them with mayo and then have this grinder deal that I got in Michigan that has all kinds of great ingredients like sun dried tomato, herbs, black pepper, roasted garlic, etc. It's great on mild stuff like chicken or fish.

Orange Juice? Hmmm. I felt that the grilling of the onions removed the sharpness on its own. But I may have to try that. I also want to try it with an asian theme - Sesame oil, a little ginger, maybe some teryaki.

nice. typical Yakitori fare, too, and grilled Welsh onions aka naganegi (also wrongly referred to as leeks sometimes, they are about halfway between a leek and a green onion) are yakitori standards as well, so grilled green onions is definitely not a new concept and they don't need to be soaked, but do fare better with some tare sauce and chicken leg meat alternated between the onion sections to give them fat. I like bacon (or just plain uncured raw pork belly strips salted and peppered) wrapped cherry tomatoes (not grape) when I go for yakitori, bacon wrapped enoki mushrooms or asparagus can also work.

GrillinFool - hit up that Korean market on Olive right off to the west side of 270 if you're interested in grabbing some big Asian green onions, they're better suited to grilling than the small American green onions and cook up a bit sweeter when exposed to heat.

I was thinking of doing bacon wrapped asparagus tonight in fact. Never done it before.

A) I will definitely check this out and I work on Olive so the Asian Markets are right down the street - Love the seafood markets. Two pound live lobsters for $14, not per pound, per lobster!! Sure they're warm water lobsters but come one, $14?

B) How do you know about the Asian markets on Olive?

Try wrapping the scallions in foil after tossing them with olive oil, sea salt, and a touch of smoked paprika. Then grill them in foil and finish them on the grill.

There's a festival in Spain that involves grilling scallions by wrapping them in newspaper and putting them over buried coals.

former local.

I recommend getting Japanese eggplants when you're in there, they grill well too, and are immensely cheaper in the midwest than their big western counterparts. Tons of produce actually, Korean food is essentially based around grilling, or boiling the hell out of, so they're all pretty durable vegetables that take to simple grilling.

Interesting. I haven't made the trek down Olive to the Asian Markets in a while. Maybe I will head down to pick up some lobsters and grab some different stuff to try on the grill. Do some experimentation... I will add it to my list of grill to do's...
