I simply love spring onions and more so if they come in the form of curly, wispy strips. Commonly found in Chinese dishes as a garnish, making these spring onion curls are a breeze. All you need is a bowl of iced water.
The thinner your strips of spring onions are, the curlier they’ll become after the iced water bath. So feel free to experiment with your desired look. I love to put these pretty spring onion curls on steamed fish, fried rice or anything that needs a sprig of color!
A bowl of iced water
Cut the spring onions into sections and slice then lengthwise very thinly.
Place in the bowl of iced water and swirl it around to make sure they are evenly submerged.
After 5 – 7 mins, your spring onions will curl up.
Remove from water and dry with paper towel.
Garnish on top of your favorite dishes.
