Steamed Salmon With Snow Peas

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make sauce: Combine lime juice through scallion in a small bowl and whisk in oil with a tiny whisk or a fork. Set aside.
  2. Rub ginger and garlic on the salmon.
  3. Arrange salmon in a steamer basket coated with spray.
  4. Run 2 inches of water into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Place steamer basket in saucepan, cover and steam 8 minutes.
  5. Add snow peas to fish, cover again, and steam about 4-5 more minutes until peas are tender crisp.
  6. 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.
