Vitamin D helps boost the absorption of calcium – necessary to support bone health. Combining a vitamin D source, like salmon, with a calcium source, like bok choy, will help enhance calcium absorption to support strong bones and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Prep: 15 mins
Two 6-ounce salmon fillet
4 heads baby bok choy
Ground Himalayan pink salt
Ground black pepper
Step 1: Pat the fish dry with paper towels and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Heat large nonstick skillet with 1 tablespoon avocado oil over medium-high heat. Put the salmon into the hot skillet, flesh-side down, and cook until golden brown and crisp, about 4 minutes. Flip with a spatula and cook the other side to the desired level of doneness, 2 to 3 minutes more. Set aside on a warm plate.
Step 2: Cook bok choy in boiling water for 3-5 minutes, season with ground Himalayan pink salt and black pepper, drizzle with olive oil.
Step 3: Arrange bok choy on plates and top with the salmon fillets, garnish with fresh cilantro.
