It perks up a piece of salmon with citrusy charm, making an ordinary dinner more exciting. Recipes reprinted from CITRUS: SWEET AND SAVORY SUN-KISSED RECIPES Copyright © 2015 by Valerie Aikman-Smith.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together yuzu juice, miso, soy sauce, and maple syrup.

  • Lay parchment on a sheet pan. Arrange bok choy on right half of parchment, leaving a 2-inch border uncovered on all sides. Place salmon on top of bok choy, drizzle with yuzu mixture, then sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  • Take left side of parchment and fold it over salmon. Pleat edges together to form a parcel, sealing fish tightly in packet. Check to make sure there are no gaps along edges.

  • Place in oven and bake 25 minutes. Salmon should be cooked through and just tender at center.

  • Remove from oven and let rest a few minutes. Cut packet open, divide salmon and bok choy among plates, and drizzle with some cooking juices.
