I came up with this dish last year and its been a family favourite ever since. I was in the local multi-cultural grocery store and saw baby bok choy on sale. I picked it up and realized I had to come up with a way to make it. Keep it simple, Sir – well, something like that. They were so small and seemed to call for something simple.

So I thought, how about sesame oil, a little hot chilli oil, salt and pepper? You fire up the barbecue and you’re done in minutes. I must admit I don’t time how long to cook it – I just look at it and figure it is wilted enough, flip it, and when it is starting to look good I take it off.

(Sorry the pictures leave a lot to be desired but it does taste a lot better then it looks!)

Belle says: This is one of those dishes that are so tasty, yet so simple. I love when Ward prepares this as the side dish to a meal, and if we have any  leftovers, they never last long. It’s even good cold!
