Sesame Crusted Salmon with Bok Choy and Sushi Rice

in december for our anniversary dan and i ate at true in fells point, maryland. for dinner i had this wonderful salmon dish. so tonight i tried to recreate it at home for dinner. it was really good and very close to the original. here are the recipes...

...sesame crusted salmon
skinless salmon fillets
sesame seeds
sea salt
peanut oil
sesame oil

sprinkle the bottom of the fillets with salt. completely cover the top of the fillet with sesame seeds using the back of a spoon to gently press the sesame seeds into the salmon. refrigerate for about 30 minutes. in a non-stick skillet heat some peanut oil and sesame oil and fry the salmon fillets sesame seed side down until brown and crispy. remove the fillets from the oil and place sesame seed side up in a greased baking dish. bake for about 20 at 350 F until the salmon is cooked through.

...braised bok choy
1 bunch of bok choy, chopped
peanut oil
1 cup chicken stock
soy sauce

heat the peanut oil in a wok. saute the bok choy for a few minutes. add the chicken stock and some soy sauce. reduce the heat to medium-low and cover. cook for about 15 minutes.

You are amazing - to be able to recreate something you ate out. I'm always looking for new ways to cook salmon. Sounds great.
