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.
