Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 pound baby bok choy, halved
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound salmon fillets
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Directions

Prep: 1. Mince garlic. 2. Grate ginger. 3. Halve bok choy. Make: 1. Place a rack 5 inches from heat and preheat broiler to high . Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil grease foil. 2. Whisk syrup, soy sauce/tamari, garlic, ginger and cayenne together in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and simmer for 5-7 minutes, until sauce is thick as a syrup. Set aside to cool. 3. Arrange salmon on broiler pan and season with salt and pepper. 4. Surround fish with bok choy and brush with olive oil. Place pan under broiler 5 minutes. 5. Remove from oven and brush salmon with a little glaze. Return fish to broiler from an additional 2-3 minutes. 6. Remove salmon and bok choy from broiler and transfer to dish. Cover fish with remaining glaze and serve.

Notes

Cooking time depends on the thickness of the salmon. Watch closely to avoid overcooking the fish. Remove the salmon just before it is done, because it will continue to cook once removed from the broiler. If you aren't too keen on sweets in your savory food, eliminate completely or reduce the maple syrup to 1/4 cup or to taste.
