A note about serious food allergies

Boom goes the dynamite, and boom goes the flavor. The difference is, one is destructive, and the other is delicious. Crispy shrimp, tossed with a rub of chile and cumin flavors, sits on a bed of rice flavored by edamame and soy sauce. And the boom boom sauce; spicy, with a hint of lime, augments the natural flavors of the shrimp. The joy of these flavors will make your heart explode… like a stick of dynamite. Tip: Bok choy can retain some grit, even after washing. To completely clean, hold upside down in a bowl of water. Shake slightly to release the grit.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using diced chicken, follow same instructions as shrimp in Steps 2 and 3, stirring occasionally until golden brown and chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using mahi-mahi, pat dry and cut into 2” pieces. Follow same instructions as shrimp in step 2 and 3, flipping occasionally until golden brown and mahi reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with jasmine rice and 1½ cups water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes. Stir in edamame and soy sauce until combined and heated through, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner. Cover and set aside. While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate. Remove any discolored outer leaves from bok choy and trim ends. Cut stems into ¼" slices and coarsely chop leaves. Halve lime lengthwise. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half. Pat shrimp dry.

  3. 3

    Cook the Shrimp

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 4 Tbsp. olive oil. Heat oil, 1-2 minutes. While oil heats, gently combine shrimp and cornstarch in a mixing bowl until coated. Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of cornstarch to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat. Add shrimp to hot pan and cook undisturbed until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer cooked shrimp to another mixing bowl and toss or gently combine with chile and cumin rub. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  4. 4

    Cook the Vegetables

    Return pan used to cook shrimp to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add bok choy to hot pan and stir occasionally until starting to soften, 2-3 minutes. Add white portions of green onions and stir occasionally until softened, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Combine boom boom sauce and lime juice in another mixing bowl. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping rice with vegetables and shrimp. Drizzle sauce (to taste) over bowl. Garnish meal with green portions of green onions. Squeeze lime wedges over bowl to taste. Bon appétit!
