Grilled Scallions with Sesame Oil
The intense heat of the grill or broiler caramelizes the natural sugars in scallions as they cook, making them exquisitely sweet and tender. Toasted sesame oil gives them a special nutty flavor. Serve these whole as a delicious side dish or slice them for a garnish to enhance the rest of your meal.  (friend of Farmer John’s farm)
6-8 Scallions, trimmed to 5 inches, cut in half lengthwise
Toasted Sesame Oil
Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper
Preheat broiler or lightly oiled grill to medium high heat. Arrange the scallions on a shallow baking sheet or a piece of aluminum foil.
Pour a little toasted sesame oil into a small bowl. Use a pastry brush to completely coat the scallions with a thin layer of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place the scallions under the broiler or on the grill and broil/grill until they are golden brown on all sides – 3 to 5 minutes.
