Cebollas Cambray (or Chambray onions), are known as the Mexican Spring Onions. They are bigger in size than the regular spring onions and look more like a big bulb. They’re very tender and when they’re grilled/cooked, they taste a little sweet.

My number 1 way to eat them with? With Tacos De Carne Asada! And of course you can’t miss having Salsa Fresca and Guacamole. This my friends, is the perfecto combination of flavors!

Ingredients

I’m counting about 4 onions per person but it all depends on how big the onions are. Their sizes vary a lot! But let me warn you, it’s hard to limit yourself with just a few so it’s better to err on the side of more!

  • 8 Cebollas Cambray (Mexican green onions)
  • Low sodium Soy Sauce
  • Worcestershire sauce (Salsa Inglesa)
  • Lime Juice
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

How To Make Cebollitas Cambray Asadas

1. Start by washing and removing the roots from the top of the onions. You can leave as much of the green part as you want. If you’re going to grill them, it’s recommended to leave at least 3 inches of the green part so that they’re easier to handle.

2. Place on a hot grill and rotate often with a pair of barbecue tongs. Cook for about 10 minutes or until they feel soft to the touch.

Note: If you want, you can mix the soy and worcestershire sauce in a small bowl before hand to have it handy

3. Drizzle the soy and worcestershire sauce mixture and some lime juice. Optional: add a little bit of black pepper. No salt needed as the soy sauce it’s salty enough.

    Hola!

    I just returned from Northern Central México. I loves these onions!!!

    Do you know what they are called in English and where I can find them in San Jose, California???

    Muchas gracias!
    David

    1. Hola David! Welcome back from Mexico!

      They’re also called Mexican green onions or Mexican BBQ onions. Look for them next to scallions. I have seen them in Kroger stores (Fry’s in Arizona), Sprouts or any latin store should have them. Especially carnicerias.

      Denada y que disfrutes!

    I’ve learned so much about Mexican tradition and food from Muy Delish. This is a perfect example. Never knew about these onions before. Now I grill them up every chance I get especially with any steak dish. Grilled perfectly, they’re super soft and melt in your mouth. Very mild and delicious!

    Oh yum! These Cebollas Cambray look absolutely incredible, especially with those char marks. Definitely perfect for pairing with Carne Asada.
