Ginger Salmon with Bok Choy : Low Carb

My blogging friend Christine made a wonderful low carb dinner recently. It was for salmon with zucchini (courgettes) tomatoes and peppers, and you can see it here
Seeing it gave me an idea to share this low carb recipe suggestion. It's for Pan-seared salmon, coated with sesame and ginger, served with braised Bok choy … you may like to give it a try.

Serves Four 
1 1/2 lb fresh Bok choy
4 tsp vegetable oil
2 tsp Minced Garlic
3/4 cup (Low Sodium) Chicken Broth
1 1/2 lb salmon fillet in four portions
4 tsp sesame seeds
1 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
1 pinch salt

1 pinch Black Pepper

1. Wash and dry Bok choy. Remove and discard rough stems and discoloured parts.
2. Chop leafy part crosswise into 2” pieces. Slice stems crosswise into 1” strips.
3. In large frying pan/skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high. Sauté garlic 1 minute.
4. Add Bok choy and broth, cover, and cook 5-6 minutes until stems are crisp-tender. Set aside in warm place.
5. In small bowl, combine sesame seeds and ginger. Massage spices onto surface of fish.
6. In large frying pan/skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over high. Place salmon, skin side down, in pan and cook 4 minutes; turn salmon and cook 4 additional minutes until internal temperature reaches 145°F.

7. Divide Bok choy between individual serving bowls. Add broth. Top each bowl with one serving of salmon. Season with salt and pepper.

From an idea seen here

Did you know that Bok Choy, otherwise known as ‘Chinese cabbage,’ is a nutritious vegetable that is high in calcium.
Aside from calcium, Bok choy is also full of vitamins, minerals, and health-supportive phytonutrients.
The vegetable is particularly high in vitamins A, C, and K.
As one of the best non-dairy sources of calcium, Bok choy offers 11% of the RDA per 100g.

I love bok choy but we don't eat it often enough. This is a good reminder to go out and buy a bunch of it. It is delicious sauteed with the right spices.

Bok choy has been a bit of a go to vegetable for us recently, especially in stir fries, or as a side dish to protein-based asian meals, and we haven't had salmon for quite a while, so this looks like a recipe to try.

I love salmon. This meal looks so delicious. And easy-think I will be trying it next time I have salmon. I haven't cooked bok choy before it looks pretty simple to do. I love bok choy but have only had out in restaurants so it will be good to try it myself. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and Easter if you celebrate. Hugs-Erika
