- 3 1/2 ounces fresh long green onions
- (negi) or young leeks
- 1/3 ounce butter
- 1/2 tablespoon salt
Wash the long green onion (or leek). Cut into about 2 in. wide pieces.
Heat the butter in a frying pan and sear the long green onion (or young leek) pieces on medium heat.
When they become soft, add the salt.
Fresh long green onions (negi) usually taste bitter, but when seared become a little less bitter and have a sweet taste. The combined taste of seared long green onions (or leeks), butter and salt is very delicious.
