    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 23 to 25 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; thinly slice crosswise. Halve the lime crosswise; squeeze the juice into a medium bowl.

    3 Cook the bok choy

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions and chopped garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the sliced bok choy; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels (remove the tails if desired). Place in a bowl; season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Toss to coat. In the same pan, heat the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until opaque and cooked through. Turn off the heat.
