    Title
    • 10 oz Tail-On Shrimp (Peeled & Deveined)
    • ½ cup Long Grain White Rice
    • 1 Tbsp Sweet White Miso Paste
    • 2 cloves Garlic
    • 2 Scallions
    • 1 oz Salted Butter
    • 1 Tbsp Weeknight Hero Spice Blend (Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Smoked Paprika & Whole Dried Parsley)
    • 1 Tbsp Vegetarian Ponzu Sauce
    • 10 oz Baby Bok Choy
    • 2 Tbsps Orange Marmalade
    • 2 Tbsps Rice Vinegar
    • ¼ tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
    • 1 tsp Black & White Sesame Seeds
    • 2 tsps Honey
    Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce

    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. In a bowl, whisk together the miso paste, honey, vinegar, orange marmalade, and 2 tablespoons of water. Season with salt and pepper.

    Cook the rice
    2 Cook the rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a small pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions and half the chopped garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

    3 Cook & finish the bok choy

    Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the remaining chopped garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the sliced bok choy and as much of the red pepper flakes as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Turn off the heat; add the ponzu sauce and stir to combine. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    Cook the shrimp
    4 Cook the shrimp

    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 a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until opaque and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

    5 Finish the sauce & serve your dish

    Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) to the pan of reserved fond. Cook on medium- high, stirring frequently and scraping up any fond, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat; stir in the butter until melted and combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the cooked shrimp with the cooked rice and finished bok choy. Top the shrimp with the finished sauce. Garnish with the sesame seeds and sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
