I made a commitment to eat more fish this year, which took some coaxing. I liked all the other ingredients/flavors in this recipe, so this was the chosen one. Therefore I used twice as much of the soy sauce mixture and vegetables to help me through and I'm glad I did because the bok choy was close to crisping under the broiler even before the salmon was cooked. It gave the final dish just enough of a finishing sauce and delightful flavor. My average rating relates more to the preparation instructions than the actual dish. Yes, I would make this again, cooking the vegetables separate from the salmon.
