Healthy and delicious. If you think you'll want more sauce, double the amounts of the first 4 ingredients. I use "lite" (lower sodium) soy sauce. In step 5, you may need to lift the steamer basket and replenish the water in the saucepan.
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1 scallion, thinly sliced (white plus about 2 inches of green)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 2 salmon fillets, skin removed, about 1 1/2 inch thick
- nonstick cooking spray
- 1⁄2 lb snow peas
- Make sauce: Combine lime juice through scallion in a small bowl and whisk in oil with a tiny whisk or a fork. Set aside.
- Rub ginger and garlic on the salmon.
- Arrange salmon in a steamer basket coated with spray.
- Run 2 inches of water into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Place steamer basket in saucepan, cover and steam 8 minutes.
- Add snow peas to fish, cover again, and steam about 4-5 more minutes until peas are tender crisp.
- Lay out a bed of snow peas on each of 2 dinner plates, top with fish and drizzle sauce over the top.
This was so fast and simple, yet so good. I loved the lime and sesame flavor of the sauce. My husband didn't even use the sauce, yet loved the fish and snow peas anyway! Thank you, echo echo, for a delicious recipe.
All the tast of salmon without having to baste in butter. The lime doesnt overpower it it brings out the flavours.....must have yum experience
This is wonderful. It makes a healthy and delciious meal for 2. Loved that everything was cooked together and little clean-up involved. I did double the sauce.
