Why This Recipe Works

I found this recipe in Bon Appétit  and knew I had to try it immediately. I love everything about this dish! I haven’t had salmon in a while, and it was a nice way to be reminded of how much I enjoy it. I also love pairing Asian flavors with salmon. The fattiness of the fish marries nicely with the umami flavors and spices found in Asian cuisine. I couldn’t find baby bok choy at my local market so I used the larger size. The wasabi mayo lends a nice level of heat, which complements the salmon, as well as the creamy mushrooms and bitter greens.
