Cooking Basics

Green asparagus - peeling off the outer skin

The skin from the root to about 1/3 to 1/2 way up the asparagus spear is hard, so use a peeler to remove this. Use a peeler rather than a knife to achieve thin and even peeling.

Japanese long onion - finely chopped

Remove the roots of the Japanese long onion, and insert vertical cuts. Then chop up finely at right angles from end to end.

Ginger - mincing

Remove the skin of the ginger and thinly slice, gradually sliding and stacking the slices. Then mince the ginger into fine pieces, and slice again finely at right angles.
