Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Peel, then mince or grate 1 tbsp ginger (dbl for 4 ppl). Heat a medium pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then half the ginger, half the garlic salt and rice. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1-2 min. Add 1 1/4 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl) and bring to a boil over high. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Meanwhile, core, then cut pepper into 1/4-inch slices. Peel, then halve carrot lengthwise, then cut into 1/4-inch half-moons. Cut bok choy into 1-inch pieces. (TIP: Rinse bok choy leaves to wash away any hidden dirt!)Thinly slice green onion.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then carrots. Cook, stirring often, until beginning to soften, 2-3 min. Add peppers, bok choy and remaining garlic salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Remove the pan from heat. Transfer veggies to a plate, then cover to keep warm.
Using a strainer, drain and rinse shrimp, then pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Heat the same pan over medium. When hot, add 2 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then shrimp and remaining ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, 1-2 min. (NOTE: Shrimp will finish cooking in step 5.)
Meanwhile, whisk together honey, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, cornstarch and 2/3 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) in a medium bowl. Add honey mixture to the pan with shrimp. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens and shrimp are cooked through, 1-2 min.**
Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in half the green onions. Divide rice between bowls. Top with veggies, shrimp and sauce. Sprinkle remaining green onions over top.
