This easy oven-to-table meal combines fresh veggies and salmon with a simple, yet savory, marinade. The marinade is made with soy sauce, rice-wine vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, honey, and sambal oelek. As well as salmon, it's perfect for chicken, steak, pork, and shrimp; keep some in the fridge and feel free to experiment with it however you'd like. The marinade is also used for the bok choy, mushrooms, and cabbage before baking in the oven for even more flavor. Garnish with a touch of sesame seeds and scallions for texture and crunch. You can also serve with additional hot sauce alongside, if desired.
