Remember that scene in Forrest Gump when Bubba was listing all the wonderful ways you can prepare shrimp? It’s just like that for scallions! Scallions have come such a long way in terms of versatility. Like I said, you can sauté them. You can bake them. You can roast them. You can pickle them.
And you can grill them! If you’ve never eaten a charred scallion straight from the grill, do yourself a favor and stop reading this article, grab a bunch of scallions, toss them with some oil, grill 'em, and devour the lot. The char transforms the scallions completely, bringing out their natural sweetness. (They're even better served on top of a piece of grilled fatty salmon.)
I could go on forever. But scallions really do have it all. I insist that you keep a bunch in your refrigerator door at all times. Because when you’re cooking and wonder what else you could add, I guarantee a scallion would happily come off the bench and onto the playing field [insert scallion foam finger].
