    Sans shrimp, we like having this every now and then, esp. with fried food :) The greens can be a bit bitter for a sweet tooth like me, but bitterness has this “healthy” feeling, doesn’t it?

    why didn i ever think of combining baby bok choy with garlic and shrimp? you are right. for chinese dishes, simplest is the best.

    Hey Bee!
    I am glad you like the book! Can’t wait for you to share some of the recipes on your blog!!
    This dish is really simple and healthy I reckon. Sometimes, I just think that Chinese/Asian food is so quick and easy to prepare and that I am lucky to be able to enjoy it in minutes!

    Your whole Beijing Olympics series has been wonderful — great photos and recipes for some of the things we all learned to love at American Chinese restaurants. Well done, Bee!

    yes..i agree with you. Simple…for freshness….YAY!
    I like 菜苗 too – the color looks great too! Reminds me of the jadelite vegetable put to exhibit in NAtional Palace Museum in Taiwan.

    Thank you for the perfect recipe for a beginner to Asian cooking! Love baby bok choi, picked some up at the local Asian market, and found this tasty treat. Very simple, quite yummy, and it gives me the satisfaction that I did this myself! ( I think that knowledge makes it taste even better.) Can’t wait to try another one of these recipes soon. Thanks again!

    I was searching for some recipes with Chinese Bok Choy so that I could adapt it to Indian Cooking. One thing I noticed everywhere was the use of garlic and the short cooking time. However, I made a Stir Fry (Thoran) and cooked the Bok Choy for around 10 minutes. I felt the stem tasted bitter when I cooked it for 2-3 minutes and so I stir fried it some more time until it was tender and then it tasted more like Cabbage.
