Here is the simple instruction on how to julienne leeks or Negi (Japanese long green onion) into Shiraga Negi (white thin strips) for garnishing.
Cut off the green part. We will only need white part for Shiraga Negi. Cut the white part into 2 to 1 ½ inch pieces.
For white parts, make an incision lengthwise and remove the soft green core. Keep all the green part for other cooking.
Open up and stack the white part of negi.
Cut the white part thinly into thin julienned strips.
