Scallion Oil

Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields 1-1/2 cups

Don’t let its pale hue fool you—this infused oil is bursting with fresh scallion flavor. This versatile oil can be used as a dipping oil for bread, crudites or french fries; as a cooking oil for scrambled eggs or popcorn, or as a finishing oil for chicken, steak, vegetables, or soups.


  • 6 oz. scallions (10 to 12), green parts cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces, white parts chopped and lightly smashed
  • 1-1/2 cups grapeseed or other neutral oil

  • In a 2-quart saucepan, combine the scallions and oil. Slowly bring to a simmer over low heat, and then simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl, pushing down on the solids to extract as much oil as possible. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
