“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!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  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. Meanwhile, pat scallops dry, sprinkle with salt and season with fresh pepper.
  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. Remove scallops to platter, on top of bok choy and tent with foil.
  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.
