My philosophy is whenever my body craves something healthy, to indulge it. Last night was no exception. For some reason, my body wanted salmon. Maybe it needs some Omega-3’s?
I had recently came across a Martha Stewart recipe for Hoisin Glazed Salmon steaks and I felt like that it was the perfect time to try it. The recipe only called for six ingredients, so I figured, why not? I ended up making some brown jasmine rice and some sautéed Bok choy to go with it. One word: YUM!!!!!!!!
- 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
- 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 4 salmon steaks (each 8 to 10 ounces and 1 inch thick)– I couldn’t find salmon steaks, so I just got two 1/2 lb portions of salmon fillet.
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- Heat broiler. In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, hoisin sauce, and honey.
- Rinse salmon steaks, and pat dry. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Place steaks on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush generously with glaze.
- Broil salmon about 4 inches from the heat source, basting once, until opaque in center, 10 to 13 minutes.
Preparing the Bok choy (my recipe)
- To prepare the bok choy: After cleaning thoroughly, heat a wok (or a pan)with a little canola oil in it (about a tablespoon) and place two pressed garlic cloves and about a tablespoon of ginger. Saute for about 30 sec, then add the bok choy. Cook until the bok choy is slightly wilted. Add a squirt of fish sauce. Serve immediately.
