Seared Salmon with sesame bok choy and spinach.

Browsing through my cook books I came across this wonderful recipe from Gourmet cookbook. Salmon with sesame bok choy and spinach. Very flavorful dish. I prepared it with Jasmine rice alongside.

I suggest having every ingredient prepared and ready to go prior to starting the salmon, as this recipe will only take  less than 10 minutes to cook once your pan in on the fire.
