2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the pickled daikon salad

  • Scrub or peel the daikon; cut the daikon in half lengthwise, then crosswise into thin half-moons.

In a medium bowl, combine the daikon, carrots, and Asian quick-pickle brine. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep your protein

  • Chicken, steak, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.


Start cooking your protein

In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 1 to 3 minutes for shrimp or scallops; 2 to 4 minutes for steak or pork; and 3 to 5 minutes for chicken. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. While your protein is cooking, start preparing the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Trim the root ends from the bok choy; cut the bok choy crosswise into 1-inch-wide pieces.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; cut the scallions into 1-inch pieces.
  • Peel the ginger; cut into very thin matchsticks or grate with a fine-toothed grater. In a small bowl, stir together the ginger and umami stir-fry blend.


Cook the vegetables; finish the stir-fry

In the same pan used for your protein, add the bok choy and scallions and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add your protein and any accumulated juices, stir-fry blend mixture, and as many chiles as you like and cook, stirring occasionally, until the protein is cooked through, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, discard the chiles, and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the stir-fry to individual bowls and serve with the pickled daikon salad.
