Bay Scallops & Bok Choy

  1. In a medium sauté pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. When sizzling hot, add the scallops. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for just a minute or two per side. Remove the scallops from the pan and add the bok choy (using the same oil, plus more if needed). Season with salt and pepper. Quickly sauté the bok choy for just a minute until slightly wilted. Plate the bok choy with the bay scallops and a drizzle of sweet orange glaze on top. Over the entire dish, sprinkle a generous amount of the Provence Nut & Spice Mix. Garnish with orange slices.
