For the Sauce

  • 3 Tbsp Honey
  • 1/4 Cup Low Sodium Soy Sauce or tamari
  • 1 Tbsp Unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 Tsp Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 1 Tsp Chili Garlic Sauce or to taste
  • 1 Tbsp Tapioca Starch
  • 1 Tbsp Water

For the Stir-Fry

  • 2 Tbsp Avocado Oil divided
  • 4 Scallions white and green parts separated, sliced diagonally
  • 3 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 1 2 inch Piece of Fresh Ginger peeled and grated or minced
  • 1/2 Cup Thinly Sliced Carrots
  • 1 Cup Sugar Snap or Snow Peas
  • 1 Cup Sliced Bok Choy stems and leaves separated
  • 1/3 Cup Thinly Sliced Radishes
  • 1 lb Raw Shrimp peeled and deveined, tails removed if desired
  • 2 Tsp Sesame Seeds


  1. To make the sauce, whisk the honey, tamari, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and chili garlic sauce in a medium bowl and set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, stir together the tapioca starch and water to form a slurry and set aside.

  3. Heat a very large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add one tablespoon of the oil. 

  4. Once the oil is shimmering, add the white parts of the scallions and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the ginger and garlic and cook for 30 more seconds.

  5. Add the carrots, peas, and bok choy stems and stir-fry for 2-4 minutes until somewhat softened. Stir in the bok choy leaves, radishes, and about half of the green parts of the scallions, reserving the remainder for serving.

  6. Stir-fry until the bok choy leaves are just wilted. Transfer the vegetables to a plate.

  7. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan. When it shimmers, add the shrimp. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until just cooked through. Return the vegetables to the pan, add the sauce, and stir.

  8. Add the starch and water mixture and continue to stir-fry until the sauce is thickened.

  9. Serve over rice topped with sesame seeds and the remaining scallions.
