Wasabi Lime Salmon!

The first dinner I made from Hello Fresh was the Wasabi Lime Salmon. 

I got my box that had all the ingredients in it, my recipe card and the salmon.

First thing I had to do was make the rice. I measured out the soy sauce that was in the cute little plastic fish and it was exactly 1 tbsp which is exactly what I needed. 

Then I rinsed the baby bok choy, sliced the scallions, cut the lime, grated the ginger and then grated the garlic. After this picture I mixed up the dressing which was that cute little jar of mayo, a little bit of garlic and ginger, wasabi paste, lime juice and a little water to thin it all out. 

After that I started cooking and it all came together so fast I didn't take any pictures. 

I was amazed at how it looked exactly like the picture on the front of the recipe card. How often does that happen! 

I layered ours just like they told me to on the recipe card. Rice, baby bok choy, salmon, drizzle the dressing over that and then squeeze some more fresh lime. 

It was so pretty! 

Once I started eating I decided that the dressing was AMAZING and I drizzled a ton more all over my food. This meal was so fabulously good! Michael even licked his plate....shhh!!! 

As for difficulty I wouldn't say this was a difficult at all. The only thing I hadn't ever done before was grate fresh ginger, but I've grated garlic so it was just like that. No biggie! I've never cooked with bok choy or wasabi before, but now that I have I'm going to be more willing to make recipes that include them. They were both great and had great flavor. I will say I did not add all the wasabi that they gave me and they did advice not putting it all in, but just a little bit at a time. I was surprised with how much I did add, but it just added flavor and no heat. 

One meal down and two to go!
