The last time when I injured my foot, my Chinese doctor recommended me to eat more steamed salmon (instead of raw or fried ones) to help with the inflammation and to improve bone density and strength so I prepared this easy steamed salmon dish 2-3 days per week for dinner till my foot condition was better. Seriously, I never had that much salmon in my life! But we didn’t mind as this was healthy and we both love salmon a lot anyway.
Steamed Salmon with Ginger and Spring Onions Recipe
Ingredients (serves 2)
2 salmon fillets with skin on
2 stalks spring onions, cut into 1″ lengths
3 slices ginger, cut into thin strips
1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp water
1. Heat a little oil in pan and pan-fry the salmon fillets (skin down) till the skin is golden brown.
2. Remove and transfer to a steaming dish (skin up).
3. Arrange the ginger and spring onions on top of the salmon and drizzle the light soy sauce and water over the fish.
4. Steam at high heat for 8-10 minutes till the salmon is cooked through.
The ginger and spring onions not only added a nice aroma to the steaming liquid, they were also capable of reducing any possible fishy smell in the salmon. And because I had seared the salmon skin before steaming, the skin was made more palatable too. I served this with steamed rice and vegetables. Enjoy!
