Blackened bok choy with sesame and orange sauce
10 minutes
Preparation Time
10 minutes, plus infusing time
Cooking Time
6 serves


80 ml (1/3 cup) vegetable oil
½ orange, zested and juiced
50 g (1/3 cup) sesame seeds
2 tsp rice wine vinegar
2 tsp tamari
2 tsp mirin
1 bunch bok choy (approximately 500 g), halved lengthwise


  1. Warm the oil in a small saucepan on medium heat, induction setting 6, for 1 minute. Add the orange zest to the warm oil and infuse for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, toast the sesame seeds in a frying pan on medium high heat, induction setting 7, for 5 minutes, stirring often. Allow to cool and reserve 1 tablespoon to serve.
  3. Blend or process the remaining sesame seeds for 1 minute, or until they form a paste. Add the orange juice, vinegar, tamari and mirin, then blend again until combined. Add half of the orange oil and blend.
  4. Preheat a tepan yaki plate or large frying pan on high heat, induction setting 7, for 5 minutes.
  5. Place the bok choy onto the preheated tepan yaki plate. Place a heavy weight, like the gourmet oven dish, on top to weigh the bok choy down and cook for 5 minutes.
  6. Place the blackened bok choy in a bowl and cover for 3 minutes to steam. Add the remaining orange oil to the bok choy and toss to combine.
  7. Arrange the blackened bok choy onto a warmed serving plate and generously drizzle with the sesame and orange sauce. Sprinkle over the reserved toasted sesame seeds.
