I live in a small town and on Sunday mornings the ‘fish man’ parks up in the square for a few hours to sell fresh locally caught fish.  He wasn’t there this week but luckily last week I bought double the amount (and froze half)  so we had the last of the bluenose tonight.  It is great fish to cook, and eat, but what I felt like this week was some tasty green vegetables.  I had bought some bok choy on Friday evening and decided to use that tonight.   So, here is a recipe for Stir-Fried Bok Choy with Ginger and Garlic – as found on Food Network.  Quick and tasty.  Note that it cooks down to very little.  I had a pack of 2 bok choy and it was enough for 2 of us, maybe 3.  But not much more.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • a splash or so of sesame oil (not in the Food Network recipe, but definitely a good addition)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce – I used Kep Manis –  just because
  • 8 cups chopped fresh bok choy (mine was probably about 1/3 of this!)
  • salt and ground black pepper

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and cook 1 minute. Add bok choy and soy sauce(or kep manis)  cook 3 to 5 minutes, until greens are wilted and stalks are crisp-tender. Season, to taste, with salt and black pepper.

 No photo,  but you can’t you just imagine it: green, tasty, fresh, yummmmmmmmmm
