We really enjoyed this salmon. The ginger, pepper and sesame seed crust on the salmon was very good and helped the salmon stay very moist. The cooking times were right on. The bok choy was absolutely wonderful. The sesame oil, rice vinegar and soy sauce is a fantastic combination. I wouldn't recommend leaving any of these ingredients out. I will make this again and again. Even the bok choy without the salmon would make a tasty and colourful side dish to any meal.
A nice dinner we had tonight! I enjoyed the bok choy a lot - I did cheat and added some broccoli in the mix which was great. I also skipped the egg and added some pinko to the coating which was yummy. Thanks for posting!
I liked the coating of egg and sesame on the fish. I did change the sauce and used a jarred sauce-sesame ginger dressing- that we love. The veggies were a nice addition as well.
