Baked Salmon with Roasted Bok Choy

Salmon is a versatile and flavorful super-food that has gotten a lot of hype in the last few years.   It’s a great food that’s beneficial to a number of health concerns and provides a whopping 40 grams of protein per 4 oz. I love salmon, but I was a bit apprehensive to try making it a home.  This is an easy recipe to try out salmon for the first time at home.  I also added the Bok Choy to this for the added crunch and freshness for the dish. 

Brown Sugar and Garlic Baked Salmon

2 servings
5 minutes to prep
12 minutes to cook
·       6-8 oz. Salmon
·       2 Tsp. Brown Sugar
·       1 Tsp. Olive Oil
·       3 Garlic Cloves (crushed)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Ready a small baking dish.  Mix together the brown sugar, olive oil, and garlic in a small bowl and mix together.  

Spread mixture evenly on top of the salmon.

Bake in the oven for 12 minutes or so.  Until the brown sugar bubbles up and the edges are crispy.  

Serve with veggies.

Roasted Bok Choy

2 servings
5 minutes to prep
