Grilled Salmon and Bok Choy with Orange-Avocado Salsa

Detox Cred: Citrus and fresh herbs add clean, fresh flavor to foods, so you don't need to use much (if any) salt. Cilantro lends more than a little zing here: the vibrant herb contains healing phytonutrients and has antimicrobial properties.

  • Coarse salt and pepper
  • 2 (4-ounce) fillets wild salmon
  • 3 heads bok choy, halved

  1. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high. In a medium bowl, combine orange segments, avocado, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and sesame oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside.

  2. Season salmon and bok choy with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
