Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • ½ cup organic maple syrup
  • ¼ cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Dash of kosher salt
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 11/4 pounds salmon fillet
  • 1 pound bok choy
  •  1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups brown rice (cooked)

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the broiler on high and lightly coat a sheet of aluminum foil placed on top of a broil pan with the grapeseed oil. (This helps with cleanup!)
  2. Whisk the syrup, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and cayenne in a small saucepot. Bring the liquid to a simmer over medium heat for 5 to7 minutes until the sauce is thick like syrup again. Set aside to cool.
  3. Arrange the salmon on the broil pan and season with the salt and pepper. Surround the fish with pieces of the bok choy. Place the pan 5 inches from the flame and broil for 5 minutes.
  4. Brush the salmon with a small amount of reduced glaze from the stovetop.
  5. Return the fish to the broiler for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Note: cooking time depends on thickness of the salmon. It is best to watch closely and avoid over cooking fish. In general, I remove the salmon just before I think it is done because it will continue to cook once removed from broiler.
  6. Remove the salmon from the broiler and transfer to a serving dish. Cover the fish with the liquid glaze. Serve with brown rice.

Notes
