One-Pan Salmon Teriyaki with Baby Bok Choy

salmon teriyaki with baby bok choy and rice

I don't think you could possibly pack any more wonderful flavor into this one-pan teriyaki salmon with baby bok choy. Making your own teriyaki sauce instead of using store-bought really makes all the difference, and it allows you to adjust your teriyaki sauce to your sweetness/saltiness preferences.

Plus, it's a very easy one-pan dish!

We love salmon for the heart-healthy long-chain omega-3 fats and proteins, but here are many more reasons why salmon is a healthy and filling choice of protein.

Health Benefits of Salmon

As mentioned, salmon is loaded with long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. But what are those exactly? Long-chain omega 3's have been shown to:

  • Lower cholesterol
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Can help with depression and anxiety
  • Lowers risk for heart disease
  • Extremely helpful to brain health and may slow neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's
  • Improve skin health, heart health, sleep, and more

Health Benefits of Bok Choy

Bok choy doesn't take a backseat to salmon when it comes to health benefits. This darky, leafy green is actually part of the cabbage family, and shares many of the same health benefits as its cousin greens.

Here are few reasons to add this cute leafy green to your diet:

  • Contains the powerful antioxidant quercetin, which is very similar to rutin
  • Fights inflammation
  • High in folate and vitamins A, C, and K
  • May help prevent certain cancers
  • Heart-healthy and can help with blood pressure thanks to magnesium, potassium, and calcium

We hope you enjoy this recipe!
