saucer spring onions ?????

English translation:Scallion
Explanation:
There are basically three onion types: Onions, Shallots and Leeks.

(More or less) Cebes, calçots i porros -

But I think this recipe is talking about young onions, so it could be scallions that are being referred to here.

"These are young Onions that haven't developed a bulb yet, though the base may be swollen. Scallions are pulled and eaten in salads and as greens. The term is also given to young Shallots and Leeks"

PS I am making this question a "pro" question, because I don't think this is common knowledge.
