Welcome Angie from Entertaining Life Daily and City Nom Noms! She's sharing a recipe for Scallop & Bok Choy Stir Fry!

6 oz. linguine, cooked al dente with liquid reserved
a few pan swirls of vegetable oil, about 2 tbls.
large white onion, roughly chopped
6 oz. mushrooms (any variety, we used shitake from our CSA)
3 oz. bok choy, stems removed and cleaned
1/2 lb scallops, cleaned and dried
2-3 tbls. red curry paste
1/4 c. peanut butter (chunky or regular)
2-3 tbls. soy sauce
1-2 tbl srirachi (depends on your spice level)
lime as garnish (optional)

1. While the pasta cooks in salted water, heat the vegetable oil in a skillet or wok. Saute the onion (garlic would work great here too, but I didn't have any on hand) for 3 minutes or until softened.
2. Season the scallops with salt and pepper and add to the wok, tossing to cook with the onions for approximately 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and continue to saute for another minute.
3. Add the curry paste, peanut butter, soy sauce and srirachi, stirring to combine into a sauce for the scallop and vegetable mixture.
4. Drain the pasta, adding some of the reserved liquid to the wok as needed to create a consistency that you are looking for with your sauce.
5. Add the bok choy - saute until wilted, a minute or two. Add the pasta and mix well.
6. Serve with a lime garnish!


About Angie
I am a Wisconsin girl who returned to the Midwest after attending college in the Northeast, hungry for life and adventure. With my hubs by my side, we are self-proclaimed foodies who have found a passion for cooking, entertaining and eating our way through the city we live in (Indianapolis) and the cities we visit. An event and meeting planner by day, I scour the city and my pantry at night wondering what my taste buds will want next. My favorite hobby is cooking with hubs or eating at a new restaurant with friends and family. Cooking is an adventure, entertainment and my creative outlet - thank you to Messy Aprons for thinking of me as a guest blogger!
