Balance is a key to creating and building flavor. This dish uses sweet chili sauce, a Thai ingredient that pairs the slight heat of roasted chilies with a little sugar. Combined with the tartness of orange, this dish has a layered, playful combination of taste sensations that bring out the best of juicy shrimp, lightly caramelized scallions and tender bok choy.
