Cooking time

It’s all about anticipation as you get ready to bite into a dish that rivals the offerings at your local Vietnamese restaurant. The difference is that you’ll have made it in your own kitchen. The salty-sweet-sour tension of this wonderfully balanced cuisine is all here, along with the textures: the shrimp are snappy, the peanuts are crunchy and the rice is fluffy. Plus, there are quick-pickled carrots and sautéed bok choy to achieve two levels of crisp-tender perfection.

Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 3 cups water and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 14 to 16 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff and keep warm.

Mise en place
Meanwhile, remove the root ends of the bok choy; cut into 1-inch pieces. In a large bowl, make the pickled carrots by combining the carrots, vinegar and S&P.

Cook the shrimp
Pat the shrimp dry with paper towel (remove the shells from the tails if desired); season with S&P. In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on high. Cook the shrimp, 1 to 2 min. on one side, until beginning to brown. Add the stir-fry sauce and spices. Flip the shrimp* and cook, 1 to 2 min., until cooked through and coated.
