Ginger soy salmon

This recipe for salmon has been made several times over throughout my entire family. It's very flavorful for being a quick and easy weeknight meal. It conveniently calls for common ingredients already on hand. We recently received a bag of baby bok choy, so this was the first dish that came to mind. You can easily make this without bok choy. I didn't have scallions on hand, so I used leeks instead.

Ginger Salmon Filets
Prep time: 20 min
Cooking time: 22 min
Yield: 4 servings
4 salmon fillets, skin on
baby bok choy 
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 piece (1 1/2 inches long) ginger root, peeled, minced
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon sliced green onion

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Layer the baby bok choy on the bottom of an 8-inch-square or other small baking dish. Then lay the salmon over it; set aside. Mix together garlic, ginger and soy; pour mixture over the salmon.Cover with foil. 
2. Bake until almost cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove foil and broil for about 3 minutes. Serve over brown rice and garnish with green onion.
