Steamed ginger salmon
- 2 pak choy or spinach leaves, trimmed
- 6 very thin slices root ginger
- 2 spring onions, finely chopped
- 2 salmon fillets, skin removed
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon salt-reduced soy sauce
- 1 ½ tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon water
- ½ teaspoon sugar
1 Place pak choy or spinach leaves in a colander. Pour over boiling water until just softened.
2 Place ginger and spring onions atop each salmon fillet. Wrap each fillet in wilted pak choy or spinach leaf.
3 Place salmon bundles in a steamer (bamboo steamers are traditionally used for this type of dish but any will work).
4 Fill a pan with boiling water ready to place steamer on top. Ensure steamer is a snug fit on top of pan. Cover with a lid. Steam for 10-15 minutes.
5 The fish is done when it is a pale pink colour and it flakes easily when broken with a fork.
6 Place dressing ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil. Serve with salmon and steamed rice or noodles.
