Here's the Asian way of chopping ginger: Scrape off the skin with the edge of a small spoon. Then cut it into very thin slices across the grain. Lay the slices in a single layer on half of a sheet of plastic wrap; fold the other half over the ginger. Pound the ginger slices with the flat side of a meat mallet. They'll separate into natural fibers. Scrape them together and chop them into small pieces. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
