    tips & techniques
    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any small stones or impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a small 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, 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.

    Prepare the ingredients
    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the bok choy; cut off and discard the root ends, then thinly slice. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop the peanuts.

    Cook the bok choy
    3 Cook the bok choy

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced bok choy and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened and the bok choy leaves are wilted. Transfer to a large bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    Cook the scallops
    4 Cook the scallops

    Pat the scallops dry with paper towels. Using your hands, remove and discard the tough side muscle from each scallop. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the curry powder to coat (you'll omit the flour for scallops). In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned scallops in an even layer. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat.

    Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the ranch dressing, 1 teaspoon of water, and as much of the curry paste as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. To the bowl of cooked bok choy, add the cooked rice and sesame oil; season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Serve the finished bok choy rice topped with the cooked scallops and sauce. Garnish with the chopped peanuts. Enjoy!
