Description

The long-stemmed bud of the Torch Ginger Flower Bud is a herb. When cut, the bud releases an aromatic, floral, grassy fragrance with citrus notes and a hint of pepper. The ginger bud can be thinly shredded and used in salads and sauces. It is an indispensable ingredient in Nyonya (Chinese-Malay) cuisine, where it is halved lengthwise and used in fish-based curries and soups to mask strong fishy tastes, as in the famous Penang asam laksa – a sour, fish-based noodle soup notably different from the Singaporean laksa due to the absence of coconut milk.
