1 teaspoon spicy Chinese chili red paste (optional)
Peel ginger and cut into small pieces. Press about 1/2-inch piece of ginger in a garlic presser and squeeze ginger juice and small bits into a medium size bowl. Grate another 1/2-inch piece into same bowl. Finely chop the scallions and place in the same bowl. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Adjust by tasting and enjoy this fantastic Chinese dumpling dipping sauce.
