Steamed Salmon with Lemon

Salmon is my favorite fish - be it raw (sushi), grilled, marinated, etc. Here is one of our favorite preparations - steamed salmon. It is light, fresh, and 100% delicious!

What you need:

  • 1 large salmon fillet
  • 2 tbsp. Soy Sauce
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 - 3 stalks of green onion, cut horizontally
  • Thumb-sized piece of ginger, cut in matchstick sizes
  • 1 lemon
  • A dash of sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp. rice wine vinegar

What to do:

Rinse and drain your fish, being careful not to da
mage the skin. Pat it dry with paper towels and sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides.

Meanwhile, in a shallow container, mix soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. Place the salmon in the soy sauce-vinegar mixture and squeeze half of the lemon over it. Slice the other half into strips and set aside. Allow the fish to marinate in the fridge for around 15 minutes.

After marinating, p
lace the fish in a lined steamer. Put the ginger slices, lemon, and green onion on top of the fish. Pour the marinade on top for extra flavor. Steam for 10 to 15 minutes, then drizzle with sesame oil. Serve with hot rice. Enjoy!

Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:

1. As with other cooking devices, it is advisable to have a layer of steamer that is used only for seafood. Especially if using a bamboo steamer.
2. Line your steamer with parchment paper for easier cleaning. However, cut slits on the parchment paper to facilitate better steam flo
3. I like to use a mixture of soy sauce and sesame oil as a dipping sauce.
