    What is Negi?

    Negi (ネギ, ねぎ), sometimes called Naga Negi (long onion 長ネギ), Shiro Negi (white onion 白ネギ), or Tokyo Negi (東京ネギ), is the Japanese name for Allium fistulosum (Welsh onion). It’s longer and thicker and has a larger amount of white stem.

    The white part has a strong onion taste, but when it’s cooked, it becomes sweeter. This part is used in many braised and simmered dishes as well as nabemono (hot pot) dishes. The green part is used as aromatics just like how we use scallions/green onions.

    What is a Good Substitute?

    Leeks can be used for a similar texture, but scallions/green onions should be added for a similar taste of Negi.

    Our Recommendations for Buying Sashimi Online

    When we have a sudden craving for sashimi we usually buy from our local Japanese supermarkets. If you don't have a reliable shop to purchase quality sashimi nearby, we would recommend buying from Catalina Offshore online. They've been in business for over forty years and all the sashimi products we've tried from them are outstanding. The products we love are the saku cut tuna, hamachi loin, and all types of salmon.
