Poached Salmon With Brussels Sprouts & Bok Choy


I think, you will be seeing some odd dishes from now to the holiday of Passover (Pesach).  I start to "use up", at this point.  "Use up" means, clearing the freezer and cabinets of any food.  It means, not buying more Parmesan when I run out.  
 I don't use a lot of canned goods but it is amazing how many cans collect, over time.  They are my "just in case" food but I rarely have a "just in case.  I was happy to see that I have been using them and they are diminishing quickly.  Actually, Eden diced tomatoes is a popular can.  I use the tomatoes in all kinds of dishes and usually keep up to 8 cans, on hand.  Each week, I pick up one new can.  You would be surprised how quickly they disappear even with my restocking, each week.

Since Hurricane Sandy, I replaced very little food in my freezer.  I do have containers of chicken stock and beef stock from my giant soup making days.  I use a container, each Friday night and change its character.  I add different vegetables and spices.  I may add rice or quinoa or serve it with the vegetables.  I, sometimes serve egg drops or kneidlach.

As a result, I plan to mix and match, and hopefully turn out some tasty treats.  

Along with this, I have decided to make Thursday nights, simple nights, with a minimum of effort, both cooking and cleanup.  Since, I like to do some Shabbos cooking, on Thursday nights, I want to get the nightly cleaning, out of the way.

Tonight was only slightly ingenious.  I used one saucepan and that is it.  I did slice the bok choy and halved the brussels sprouts on a cutting board, the kind that is easy to clean.

Poached Salmon with Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients:

2 salmon fillet
1 baby bok choy
1 box fresh brussels sprouts
1 cup soy sauce
1 - 2 cups water 

Method:

Heat soy sauce and water in 3 quart saucepan.  Add salmon and cook for 5 minutes.

Cut brussels sprouts into halves and add them to the pot and cook until tender (about 10 minutes),  Add bok choy and cook for another 3 minutes, at most.

Use a slotted spoon to serve.
