Get dinner on the table super fast with this Asian flavored Simple Broiled Salmon and Bok Choy Tray Bake. Salmon and veggies all on one tray!
It never hurts to have a handful of recipes that you can fall back on that are super healthy and get dinner on the table really fast. And this paleo, gluten free broiled salmon tray bake is the one of those keeper recipes.
The sweet, umami flavored marinade deliciously tops flaky salmon and bok choy on one tray! This means very little clean up AND everything is done at the same time! That is an absolute must when you are making a dinner that needs to be on the table in a super asap stat style.
Are you a fan of tray bakes?
To be honest, tray bakes have been hard for me to get on board with. Something about them just weirds me out. Yet every single time I try one I am in love and promise myself I will make more of them.
And have I mentioned the ingredient list for this salmon is super simple. Everything is a pantry staple and you only need 6 ingredients in addition to the salmon and bok choy.
6 ingredients friends!!
And guess what?! This super clean healthy salmon is ready in 15 minutes. Yup. That means there are zero excuses you can come up with not to make a healthy dinner on even the busiest nights you can come up with.
You can't even run to McDonalds and back in 15 minutes.
Your salmon and vegetables just need a quick sauce to make them taste amazing. To make this simple salmon broiled in the oven you will need:
- oven that can broil
- baking sheet or jelly roll pan
- bok choy
- coconut aminos
- kosher salt
- sesame oil
- dijon mustard
- garlic powder
If you are not paleo, you can substitute the coconut aminos for soy sauce.
You could also sub the sesame oil for whatever oil you have on hand. Sesame oil just adds to the Asian flavors of the dish
Side Dish Ideas
The salmon and bok choy veggies go perfectly with a side of cauliflower rice or your favorite grain rice. We had this meal twice, and used organic pink rice one time and basmatti rice the second time.
Must Read Tips
A few tips from recipes testing:
- Don't use parchment paper. I did this both freaking times I made this fish. because I forgot the second time I made it. The parchment paper gets too wet and it tears when you serve the fish.
- Be sure to put the leafy bok choy parts under the salmon. This is a necessary step so that your leafy parts don't burn to a crisp while the rest of your food broils to perfection.
