Steamed Asian Salmon

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Boomette

A recipe from Ricardo. This is so good. I steamed the marinated salmon in my steamer machine. But you can do it any way you want.

The DM and the DS thoroughly enjoyed this tonight, though I found it a little to sweet and it was cooked to perfection in the 8 minutes in the bottom tier of my 3 tier electric steamer. The big issue I had was reducing the marinade to a syrup after 10 minutes of simmering (anything above that and there would have been a volcanic explosion) so transferred to a frypan to get the sauce over a larger surfact area but after 5 minutes still at sauce consistency so left it at that and served over the salmon and was wishing I had served plain rice instead of fried rice as it would have been nice to go over the rice and would also like to add a small chilli finely chopped to give a little zing and take away some of the sweetness that I was not so keen on. An excellent quick healthy mid week meal, thank you Boomette, made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #62 March 2012.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Marinade: In a bowl or sealable bag, combine all the ingredients. 
  2. Salmon: Add the salmon to the marinade and coat well. Refrigerate for about 2 hours.
  3. Drain the steaks and pour the marinade into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the sauce is syrupy. Set aside.
  4. Place the steaks, side by side, in a steamer (bamboo or a pan with holes on the bottom), placed on top of a pan of boiling water. Season with salt and pepper. Top the steaks with the green onions. Steam for about 8 minutes or until the desired doneness.
  5. Spoon the sauce over the salmon and serve with jasmine rice and green vegetables.
