Bok Choy is a fantastically-flavoured vegetable, also referred to as Pak Choi (and also known as Chinese Cabbage). The additional step of charring the bok choy and tomatoes enhances their flavor, and the acidity of the dressing complements the salmon. A great, low-carb dinner offering massive flavours.

2 tsp sesame seeds
2 tsp ginger, minced
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp lime juice
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp olive oil
3 baby bok choy, washed and halved
140g cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tsp sesame oil, additional for grilling
2 salmon steaks, skin on
Start by toasting the sesame seeds in a hot, dry pan. Remove and set aside.
Make the dressing by simply mixing in the minced ginger, soy sauce, lime juice and sesame oil along with 1 teaspoon of hot water. Whisk well and set aside.
Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and add the halved bok choy. Cook until slightly tender, this shouldn’t take longer than 1-2 minutes. Remove and set aside on a tray lined with kitchen paper.
Heat a griddle pan, brushing one teaspoon olive oil on it. Grill the bok choy until visibly char-marked on the flat side. Do the same with the halved tomatoes. Depending on the size of your pan, you may need to do this in two batches, brushing with an additional teaspoon olive oil between grilling. Set aside to keep warm.
In a clean, flat pan, heat the sesame oil and fry the salmon skin-side down until crispy. Turn the salmon over and cook for an additional 4-6 minutes, depending on how well you like your salmon done.
Serve the salmon over the grilled bok choy and tomatoes and drizzle over the dressing. Top with the toasted sesame seeds.
