Prep and cook the bok choy and scallions
- Trim the root ends from the bok choy; cut the bok choy in half lengthwise, keeping the cores intact.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; cut the scallions crosswise into 2-inch pieces.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the bok choy, cut sides down, and the scallions, season with salt and pepper, and cook without turning until lightly browned and just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. Meanwhile, prepare your protein.
Prep your protein
- Ground meat (including plant-based): Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
- Shrimp: Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate.
- Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch cubes.
Cook your protein
In the same pan used for the bok choy and scallions, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add your protein, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring and breaking up the ground meat if using, until your protein is lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes for shrimp and 3 to 5 minutes for ground meat or tofu.
Stir in the cashew-lime glaze and 5 tablespoons [½ cup] water and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the glaze is thickened slightly and your protein is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While your protein is cooking, start preparing the salsa.
Make the orange salsa
- Using your hands or a sharp knife, peel the orange. Cut the fruit lengthwise into quarters, then crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices. Discard any seeds.
- Coarsely chop the cilantro.
- Thinly slice the radishes for garnish.
In a medium bowl, combine the orange, cilantro, half the shichimi togarashi, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper and more shichimi togarashi, if desired.
Transfer the bok choy and scallions to individual plates. Top with your protein, orange salsa, and radishes and serve.
- Measure the water for your protein.
- Time the cooking.
- Peel the orange by hand.
- Top the dish with the radishes.
