4 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

2 teaspoons lime juice

1 teaspoon lime zest

1/4 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon spicy sesame oil

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.
