Scallion Oil (aka Green onion) is one of my secret ingredients in the kitchen.
You may remember my Onion oil post from a few months ago. We use onion oil all the time and it took me a bit of convincing to get my Mr. to try the other flavored oils, like this scallion oil.
I keep three flavored oils on hand. Onion, Scallion, and Garlic. These oils can be used together or separate. They are amazing at enhancing any meal and they are so easy to make.
I keep mine in oil bottles with easy pour spouts near the stove so I can easily grab them with needed. The oils bottles ususally don't hold all the oil I make so I put any extra in a mason jar. I keep the mason jars in the fridge so they have an extended shelf life and can refill the other bottles when the time comes.
I love cooking my morning eggs in scallion oil, doesn't matter if they are fried or scrambled, the scallion oils gives them just enough flavor and takes breakfast to the next level.
It's also great when combined with toasted sesame oil and adding it to my Ramen.
I drizzle it over pasta and toss with cheese.
We slather our steaks with it before cooking them.
We coat vegetables with it before putting them on the grill.
.... I think you get it. Flavored oils are amazing....

- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 40 minutes
- Total Time: 45 minutes
- Category: Appetizer, Main Course, Side Dish
- Cuisine: American, Chinese
- 3 Bunchs Scallions -aka Green onions ( Cut into 1 inch lengths)
- 2 cups Oil of choice (I use peanut or avocado oil, but any high heat, mild flavor oil will work.)
- I prefer to cook mine in a Wok but you can also use a large pot. Add the green onions and Oil to a cold Wok. Turn on the heat to Medium. You want the oil to be hot but below a simmer. Adjust heat as needed you do not want the onions to burn.
- Cook for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the Scallions have shrunk and are starting to become golden and crispy. Using a slotted spoon or mesh ladle, remove the scallion pieces.
- Allow the oil to cool before straining with cheese cloth and pouring into storage containers.
- You can store on the counter for up to a month, or 2 months in the refrigerator.
To store the oil you can find glass oil bottles here.
