Sesame Crusted Salmon with Bokchoy & Tamari Dressing

This is a quick and delicious way to serve salmon with a healthy side vegetable of bok choy.  You can also substitute another firm fish of your choices such as cod, haddock or halibut.  Using white and black sesame seeds gives this a dramatic presentation.  You can buy them already mixed or buy separately and mix together.

¼ cup white or/and black sesame seeds
8 baby bok choys cut in half lengthwise
2 tbsp olive oil
1/8th tsp salt and pepper

1 ½ Tbsp tamari or light soy sauce
1 ½  tsp rice vinegar


1. Preheat oven to 425 F.  Line a large baking sheet with foil sprayed with vegetable oil
2. Place sesame seed on plate and press salmon fillets (not skin side) into seeds to cover.   Place on baking sheet along with bok choy.  Drizzle olive oil over bok choy with salt and pepper
3. Roast for 12 – 15 minutes just until fish flakes and bok choy is tender.
4. Combine hoisin, soy sauce and rice vinegar in small bowl.  Place salmon and bok choy on plater and drizzle with sauce
