  • Use a micro-plane grater to make the job easier, or finely mince the ginger and garlic.
  • Extra grated or minced ginger can be frozen and used in desserts, drinks, and stir-fries.


Soy ginger marinade will stay in the fridge for up to 10 days if it is in a well-sealed container and hasn’t been used. Before using, give it a good shake to get the components to mix once more.

Using ice cube trays, freeze the soy-ginger marinade. Then, put the frozen cubes in a sealed bag with the date written on the exterior. For soups, stews, or stir-fries, take out one or two cubes.
