Feeling a little “hoisin” tonight

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!!!!!!!!

This was definitely a 30 minute meal (well if you cook the rice first..lol):


  • 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


  1. Heat broiler. In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, hoisin sauce, and honey.
  2. Rinse salmon steaks, and pat dry. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Place steaks on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush generously with glaze.
  3. 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)

  1. 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.
