Simple Butter-Braised Green Onions Cooking Recipes

Butter-Braised Green Onions

As much as I love fresh asparagus, they are only in their full prolific glory for a short time in the spring. Green onions on the other hand are almost always in the market. Prepared this way, they make a wonderfully delicious alternative to asparagus, and they are generally less expensive. Serve with any grilled whole fish, such as red snapper or striped bass.

Makes 6 servings

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 6 bunches (36 to 48) green onions (scallions), outer layer peeled off, tops cut to leave the onions about 6 inches long

  • 1/4 cup well-flavored chicken stock, or water

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • Chopped fresh cilantro

  1. Melt the butter in a large heavy covered skillet over medium heat. Add the green onions and toss to coat with the butter.

  2. Add the stock. Cover and simmer over low heat until very tender when pierced with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes.

  3. Season well with salt and pepper.

  4. Serve this simple cooking recipes hot or at room temperature, spooning any sauce over them, garnished with the cilantro.
