Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Separate bok choy leaves, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Thinly slice green onions. Peel, then grate 1 tbsp ginger (dbl for 4 ppl). Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Pat salmon dry with paper towels, then season with salt and pepper.
Heat a medium pot over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then half the green onions and half the ginger. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Add rice and 1 1/3 cups water (2 1/2 cups for 4 ppl). Bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.
While rice cooks, stir together mayo, 1 tsp water, 1/2 tsp sugar and 1/2 tsp wasabi paste (dbl all for 4 ppl) in a small bowl. Set aside. (NOTE: This is your wasabi mayo!) Combine soy sauce-mirin blend, garlic, honey, remaining ginger and 3 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl) in another small bowl. Set aside. (NOTE: This is your glaze!)
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then salmon. Pan-fry, until golden-brown and cooked through, 1-2 min per side.**
When salmon is cooked through, transfer to a plate and set aside. Using the same pan, reduce heat to medium-low. Add bok choy and glaze. Cook, stirring often, until tender-crisp, 1-2 min.
Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in remaining green onions. Season with salt. Divide rice and bok choy between bowls. Top with salmon and spoon over any remaining glaze from the pan. Drizzle over some wasabi mayo to taste.
