Spring Onion Whisks

Spring onions with greens - a few

Wash spring onions and trim off some of the green top. Cut off the white bulb where it starts to turn green. Keep the bulbs for cooking. Fresh crisp spring onions will make the best garnishes. Using a pair of small kitchen scissors, cut down the greenest part of the onion, stopping about halfway down. Continue to snip the onion into fine strips. Sometimes there are two branches of the green. If so, cut both into fine strips. Drop the spring onion into a bowl of cold water for a few seconds for the strips to curl. Keep lifting out so they don’t curl too tightly. Avoid using iced water as the spring onions will frizz into very tight curls. Use to garnish salads, barbeques meats and oriental dishes.
