Using spring onions in a wok stir fry is an excellent way to impart this extra fragrance, sweetness and delicate flavour to any meat or seafood, be it fish slices, chicken, beef or even frog legs. And with the use of ginger slices, any possible fishy or gamey smell is just reduced to none. My mother-in-law makes a really good stir fried beef with spring onions & ginger so it’s one of my husband’s favourite dishes. Salty and savoury, it goes really well with steamed rice. Enjoy!
