A note about serious food allergies

We love citrus in the Home Chef kitchen, but since we live in our lemon and lime comfort zone, it's not often we get to use the noble orange. Well, not often enough, we should say. In this meal, orange, garlic, and soy meld for the perfect sauce to coat these small seafood superstars. The sauce is also scrumptious on the fresh bok choy and toothsome carrots… a sauce this good deserves to be everywhere. 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.

  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice, 11/2 cups water, and a pinch of salt to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender, 18-20 minutes.

    While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Remove any discolored outer leaves from bok choy and trim ends. Cut stems into 1/4" slices and coarsely chop leaves, keeping stems and leaves separate.

    Pat shrimp dry. Place in a mixing bowl with cornstarch and gently combine until shrimp is coated.

  3. 3

    Cook the Vegetables

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add bok choy stems to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly charred, 4-5 minutes.

    Add matchstick carrots, white portions of green onions, bok choy leaves, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Stir often until vegetables are tender, 1-2 minutes.

  4. 4

    Cook the Shrimp

    Add vegetables to pan. Stir in orange sauce, soy sauce, and 1 Tbsp. water until vegetables and shrimp are coated. If too thick, add water 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
