For the marinade:
For the salmon and veggies:
Whisk together soy sauce, oil, honey, garlic, ginger, and black pepper. Divide the mixture in half.
Add the salmon to a bowl or resealable plastic bag with half of the marinade. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat the grill to high heat. Clean and oil the grates. Remove salmon from marinade and discard any excess. Reduce heat to medium high. Place salmon skin side down on the grill. Cook for 10–12 minutes without flipping, until salmon flakes easily with a fork and reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees F, as measured with a meat thermometer in the center of the thickest part of the fillet. Monitor the grill for any flare-ups while salmon is cooking. Cook time will vary depending on the thickness of the fillet. Salmon will continue to rise in temperature off the heat to a safe internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
While the salmon is grilling, add the remaining marinade mixture, the bok choy (cut side down), and carrots to a large sauté pan over medium heat. Use two sauté pans, if needed. Toss the carrots every minute or so, but let the bok choy cook cut side down. The other side of the bok choy will steam from the heat. Cook for 6–8 minutes, or until desired doneness.
Plate the salmon and vegetables. Add salt and pepper to taste and top with sliced scallions. Serve.
