A simple, healthy and delicious recipe for Teriyaki Salmon with Baby Bok Choy. A 30 minute, one pan dinner!
- 24 oz wild caught salmon, whole or cut into 6 oz filets
- 4–6 baby bok choy, sliced lengthwise
- 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce (or tamari for gluten free
- 1 tbsp minced garlic, 3 cloves
- 1 tbsp fresh peeled and grated ginger, about 1 1/2 inch nub
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1–2 teaspoons olive oil
- Rice or quinoa for serving
- Sesame seeds and scallions for garnish
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- In a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic and ginger. Pour or brush about 1/4 of the sauce over the salmon. Let it sit in the fridge to marinate for 20 minutes or so if you have the time.
- While the salmon is marinating, slice the whole baby bok choy lengthwise and toss with olive oil directly on the sheet pan.
- Nestle the salmon in the middle of the bok choy, making sure that everything is in one even layer for even cooking.
- Bake the salmon and veggies in the oven for 18-22 minutes or until the bulbs of the bok choy are tender and the leaves are a bit crispy.
- While the salmon and veggies are baking, heat the remaining sauce in a small saucepan until boiling. Turn the heat down and add in honey and whisk until totally combined.
- In a separate small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water until dissolved. Pour cornstarch slurry into simmering sauce and whisk. Gently simmer sauce until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Once the bok choy is tender crisp, use tongs to remove it from the sheet pan and set aside on a plate. Turn the broiler on high and run the salmon under the broiler for 1-2 minutes until cooked through and slightly crisp on top. Watch it carefully!
- Remove sheet pan from the oven. Place bok choy back on the pan with the salmon. Drizzle the entire thing with sauce and garnish with thinly sliced scallions and sesame seeds.
- Serve with rice or quinoa and extra sauce on the side.
Cooking times will vary a bit depending on your oven and your baking sheet. Check the veggies after about 15 minutes in the oven. Salmon should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
