"I use this machine all the time," says Jing Tio of his L'Equip dehydrator, which looks like a supersized plastic toaster with horizontal drying trays. Tio has perfected the art of drying orange peel, grinding it to create a citrus powder with a beautifully smooth flavor—delicious with his simple crab and scallion salad. You can buy granulated orange peel at specialty food shops.

How to Make It
In a large skillet, heat the oil. Add the scallion whites and ginger and cook over moderate heat until starting to brown, about 3 minutes.
