Subtly seasoned and crisp, this easy topping can be eaten with any rice wrap or bowl, and acts as the perfect compliment to Grilled Crisp-Skinned Salmon. It’s an adaptation of a recipe in Everyday Korean: Fresh, Modern Recipes for Home Cooks, by Kim Sunée and Seung Hee Lee.

How to Make It

1

While the salmon cooks, put your deputy in charge of this dish. Blanch sprouts in boiling salted water 1 minute. Drain; cool in a bowl of ice water. Spin dry, covered with a paper towel.

2

In a bowl, whisk chopped green onion, garlic, oil, salt, and pepper. Add sprouts; gently toss. Season with salt and pepper and top with sliced green onion.

Ingredients

 1 lb fresh bean sprouts, rinsed
 2 tsp finely chopped green part of green onion, plus thinly sliced green parts for topping
 ¼ tsp minced garlic
 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
 ½ tsp fine sea salt
 Pinch freshly ground pepper
