Ingredients

2
tablespoons
plus 1 teaspoon canola oil
1 1/4
pounds
skinless salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces
kosher salt
4
scallions, thinly sliced
2
cloves garlic, thinly sliced

pound
baby bok choy, halved lengthwise
4
small carrots, cut into thin strips
Sriracha or Asian chili-garlic sauce, for serving

Directions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season the salmon with ½ teaspoon salt and cook until opaque throughout, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a second large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallions, garlic, and ginger and cook, tossing, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the green beans, bok choy, carrots, ¼ cup water, and ½ teaspoon salt and cook, tossing occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Serve with the salmon and drizzle with the Sriracha.
