I love a little Asian fusian.
My mother is big on finding recipes from magazines and trying a new dish every night. She stumbled upon this beauty and we had to try it out. This recipe comes from RealSimple.com and they know what they are doing when they say “real simple”. The recipe calls for salmon, bok choy, and lo mein. If you’re like my family, we just ordered lo mein from our favorite Chinese restaurant and concentrated on perfecting the salmon and the bok choy aspects of the meal. The prep and cook time too no more than an hour and what came about was the most delicious meal involving salmon that I’ve devoured in awhile.
- 1 1-pound piece boneless, skinless salmon
- 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
- 3/4 pound lo mein noodles
- 3 tablespoons canola oil
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- Kosher salt
- black pepper
- 1 pound baby bok choy, sliced
- 2 scallions, sliced
- 1 red chili (such as Fresno), chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh mint, torn
- Heat oven to 425° F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
- Combine the salmon and 1/4 cup of the teriyaki sauce in a bowl. Toss to coat. Let marinate for 20 minutes. Transfer the salmon to the prepared baking sheet. (Discard the extra marinade.) Roast until opaque throughout, 12 to 14 minutes. Flake into large pieces.
- Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to the package directions.
- Whisk together the oil, lime juice, the remaining 3 tablespoons of teriyaki sauce, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add the bok choy, scallions, chili, and mint and toss to combine.
- Serve the noodles topped with the salmon, slaw, and any remaining dressing.
