  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh orange zest*
  • 3 tbsp. fresh lemon or lime juice

  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh bok choy, chopped
  • 4 wild salmon fillets (~ 4 oz each)

  1. Preheat broiler
  2. In a small bowl, stir together first 5 ingredients and set aside marinade
  3. Rinse and dry the salmon. Rub with lemon or lime juice. Brush both sides of fish, generously with sauce mixture. Place on baking pan, cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  4. Broil salmon until opaque but moist in the center, basting occasionally with the remaining sauce (approx. 6 min.). Remove from broiler cover with foil to keep warm.
  5. In a large skillet, heat sesame oil over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté, stirring continuously so as not to burn, for 2 minutes. Add red pepper flakes during last 30 seconds of sautéing the garlic (optional). Add the bok choy, 3 tablespoons of the marinade and sauté until heated thoroughly.
