L.A. Times Test Kitchen tips: Peeling ginger
Just use a spoon.
Because the skin is so delicate and tissue-like, a spoon can easily scrape it away. And unlike a vegetable peeler or knife, which will peel some of the root with the skin, a dull spoon should take away only the skin.
A spoon is also handy for getting into all those nooks and crannies with a ginger root, too.
