2 teaspoons kosher salt

3-inch thumb fresh ginger, peeled and julienned, plus 4 quarter coin-sized slices

1/4 cup soy sauce 

2 pounds broccolini 

1/3 cup avocado oil or other neutral-flavored oil 

8 scallions, julienned 

1 to 2 Fresno chiles, sliced thinly, optional 


  1. Bring large, deep skillet of water to boil over high heat. Season with salt and coins of ginger. Pour soy sauce into a measuring cup and set aside.
  2. Blanch broccolini in the skillet until just tender, a few minutes. Remove to a large platter, draining as much water as possible (reserve the water).
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a small saucepan over high heat.
  4. Place julienned ginger, scallions and chiles over broccolini.
  5. Test if oil is hot enough by dropping one piece of ginger into the saucepan. If it sizzles with vigor, then it's hot enough! Carefully pour hot oil over the broccolini and aromatics.
  6. Quickly dilute soy sauce with 1/4 cup hot water from the skillet. Stir together, then pour around the broccolini and serve!
