- Place the miso paste in a pan and whisk in the stock. Bring to a simmer, then add the lime leaves, chillies and ginger.
- Cut the salmon in half, width-wise. Add it to the stock, skin side down, and simmer for 8–10 minutes, basting it in the liquid till cooked through.
- Separate the bok choy leaves from the stems. Chop the stems into bite sizes and shred the leaves. Slice broccoli into bite sizes.
- Transfer the salmon to a plate, spoon some broth over it and bring remaining stock back to a boil.
- Cook the broccoli in the broth for 30 seconds, add the bok choy stems. Cook for 1–2 minutes, then add the shredded leaves. Cook till the leaves wilt. Flake the cooked salmon into large chunks, discarding the skin.
- Add half the mushrooms to the broth. Rub serving bowls with toasted sesame oil, and divide remaining mushrooms between them. Add flaked salmon and vegetables to each bowl, then spoon some broth over it. Garnish and serve immediately.
