5 minutes of prep time + 25 minutes in the oven = a healthy, hearty dinner that your family will love; and you’ll enjoy making!



  • 1.5 lbs. salmon 
  • 1 lb. baby bok choy, halved
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper


  1. Do not preheat oven!
  2. Place salmon onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  3. Add bok choy in a single layer around the salmon fillet.
  4. Combine hoisin, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and a large pinch of salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  5. Pour sauce over the salmon (spread it in an even layer) and drizzle over the bok choy as well. Reserve about 1 tablespoon of sauce to dress the salmon when it’s finished cooking.
  6. Put salmon and veggies into the oven and turn the oven to 425 degrees. Bake for 25-30 minutes, checking after 20 minutes. The salmon is done cooking when the thickest part flakes easily with a fork.
  7. Pour remaining tablespoon sauce over the salmon and garnish with fresh chopped cilantro and sesame seeds!
