Easy Honey-Soy Glazed Salmon & Bok Choy Healthy Dinner Recipe

Elevate your weeknight dinner with this mouthwatering honey-soy glazed salmon bok choy . A quick marinade and a brief stint under the broiler transform simple ingredients into a restaurant-quality meal in minutes.

This delightful dish draws inspiration from teriyaki, which literally means ‘glazed grilled’ in Japanese. While not strictly authentic, our version captures the essence of this cooking method, resulting in a caramelized glaze that’s simply irresistible.

The magic lies in the marinade – a harmonious blend of soy sauce, honey, lemon juice, ginger, and garlic. This flavor-packed mixture infuses the salmon with a perfect balance of sweet and savory notes, while the high heat of the broiler creates a tantalizingly crisp exterior.

Paired with lightly steamed bok choy, this dish offers a delightful contrast of textures and flavors. It’s a feast for the senses that’s sure to become a family favorite.

Honey-Soy Glazed Salmon with Bok Choy: A Flavor Explosion in Every Bite


  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 inch peeled fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 4 salmon fillets, about 1 1/2 pounds
  • 4-6 heads baby bok choy, root ends trimmed off


  1. In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, lemon juice, ginger, and garlic until the honey is fully incorporated. Set aside 1/4 cup of this magical marinade in a separate bowl. Place the salmon fillets, skin-side up, in the remaining marinade. Let the flavors meld for at least 10 minutes, or ideally 30 minutes for maximum taste infusion.
  2. While the salmon marinates, preheat your broiler (or grill) to high. In a medium skillet, bring 1/4 cup of water to a boil over high heat. Add the bok choy and cover, allowing it to steam until nearly tender, about 4 minutes. Uncover and pour in the reserved marinade. Toss to coat the bok choy evenly, then cook for an additional 2 minutes to reduce any excess liquid. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Now for the grand finale! Place the marinated salmon under the broiler, skin-side down. Broil without turning until the exterior is beautifully caramelized and the fish is just cooked through. This usually takes 7-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fillets and their distance from the broiler. Keep a close eye on them to achieve that perfect golden-brown crust.
  4. Time to plate up your culinary masterpiece! Arrange the glossy bok choy on each plate and crown it with a succulent salmon fillet. Serve immediately and prepare for a symphony of flavors!
