    I have a frozen salmon that I need to figure out what to do with! Sadly I’m the only person in the house who will eat it. Never had bok choy though!

    The black seeds on the salmon look like black caraway seeds. Any idea where to get them without paying $8.00 shipping on Amazon.

      I am able to find them at Whole Foods as well as a local Asian market.
