Grilled Scallions with Sesame Oil

The intense heat of the grill or broiler caramelizes the natural sugars in scallions as they cook, making them exquisitely sweet and tender.

Serves 2

  • About 8 scallions, greens trimmed to 5 inches, cut in half lengthwise
  • toasted sesame oil
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

 1. Preheat the broiler or lightly oiled grill to medium-high heat. Arrange the scallions on a shallow baking sheet or a piece of aluminum foil.


2. Use a pastry brush to coat the scallions with a thin layer of sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper. Broil or grill until golden brown on all sides, 3 to 5 minutes.
