    Also known as scallions or green onions, spring onions are in fact very young onions, harvested…

  • ¼ small red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp gochugaru chilli flakes (see tip)

Method

  1. Put the spring onions and onion in a large bowl of iced water and soak for at least 5 mins (or up to 2 hrs) in the fridge, until the spring onions curl up.

  2. When ready to serve, drain well, spin in a salad spinner or pat dry, then transfer to a medium bowl. Add the sesame oil, gochugaru and a pinch of salt, then toss to coat. Serve immediately.

This is so simply and went amazingly with the jap chae Korean noodle dish from Good Food. I couldn't find the Korean chilli so just used normal Chilli flakes.
