    This recipe takes very few ingredients and only a few minutes to put together! This healthy blend of bok choy and scallops would go great over some steamed rice. Slightly adapted from a Chatelaine recipe. Enjoy!

    1. 1
      Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. When hot, spray with oil. Add bok choy (it will cook down). Stir often until tender-crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove to a platter and tent with foil to keep warm.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, pat scallops dry, sprinkle with salt and season with fresh pepper.
    3. 3
      Melt butter in pan over medium. Add scallops (in 2 batches if necessary). Cook 2 minutes and flip to cook other side for 1 to 2 more minutes. If butter turns dark, turn heat down slightly. Only cook for 1 minute per side if using the small scallops.
    4. 4
      Remove scallops to platter, on top of bok choy and tent with foil.
    5. 5
      Add sweet chili sauce, water and vinegar to pan. Boil, stirring until thickened slightly, about 1 to 2 minutes. Pour sauce over scallops and bok choy. Serve with rice.

      We really enjoyed this recipe last night for dinner. It is the perfect weeknight meal because the prep is so minimal and it comes together quickly and easily. It is also really impressive looking. I used sea scallops. I loved the combination of the sweet chili sauce and the bok choy. In fact I think I enjoyed my chili bok choy bites more than my scallop bites and this could easily be made a good vegetarian dish. Also, I didn't start my rice in time, so I served over vermicelli rice noodles instead. Thanks for posting. Made for Family Picks ZWT9.

      This recipe was in a free cookbook I got with my new Chatelaine subscription and it looked so good, I had to try it. My grocer had sea scallops on special last week so I bought what I needed and froze them to use later in the week. We had them today for Good Friday. I only used five bok choy since they were quite large but it was more than enough. We really enjoyed this - DD asked for seconds, which he rarely does, unless it's dessert. :-) I will definitely make this dish again!
