4 baby bok choy (about 1 pound), split horizontally
2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
4 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 teaspoon lime zest
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon spicy sesame oil

Cook's Note: Spicy sesame oil is available in the Asian section of most supermarkets, but you could also substitute a combination of regular sesame oil and red chilli flakes to taste.

Place the bok choy in a steamer basket and place the basket over (not in) simmering water. Steam until the base of the bok choy is just tender when pierced with the tip of a knife, about 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together the chives, soy sauce, lime juice, lime zest and sugar in a small bowl. Transfer the bok choy to a platter and drizzle with the soy mixture. Drizzle with the spicy sesame oil and serve.
