If there is one ingredient that tends to show up time and again in stir-fry recipes its scallions. Personally I love scallions, but oftentimes when the recipe calls for the thinly shredded scallions that are a staple of many stir-fry dishes, I wimp out and just roughly chop them. Luckily for us some enterprising genius came up with the negi cutter, a nifty and easy way to quickly and uniformly shred scallions. It’s also handy for asparagus, leeks, and other veggies.
Many of our upcoming recipes will call for shredded scallions, so I’m happy to announce our next giveaway will be a negi cutter, courtesy of The Wok Shop! Here’s how to enter:
Leave a comment below by midnight on August 31st with your thoughts on the following prompt:
Would you make a non-Asian stir-fry (ie. shrimp scampi stir-fry)? Do you feel stir-fry has to be Asian or do you like the idea of stir-fries with Mediterranean, Latin, or even Caribbean flavors? Can the aromatics be garlic, shallots, or onion (rather than ginger, scallions, and chilies) and be seasoned with chopped basil and wine (rather than cilantro and rice wine)? Tell us what you think.
A winner will be chosen at random and will find him or herself the proud owner of a new negi cutter!
