This dish came out great. Very healthy and easy because of the steaming. Drizzling the sesame oil over the top at the end really makes the dish. Wonderful!

  1. Rinse and pat dry the salmon fillets. Drizzle soy sauce, salt, and pepper over the fish. Sprinkle with sliced scallions and ginger.
  2. Cut the lemon in half and then cut half a lemon into thin slices.
  3. Use about 1 section of your bamboo steamer (about 1 inch tall). Place either some cabbage, butter lettuce, or banana leaf down on the steamer and lay the fish on top. Place the sliced lemon on top of the fish. Squeeze the remaining juice from 1/2 the lemon all over the top.
  4. Steam the fish for 8-10 minutes by placing the bamboo steamer over boiling water in a wok or similar dish.
  5. Remove from heat and drizzle the sesame oil over the fillets. Serve hot over rice, bok choy, or thin noodles.

    I like the simplicity of this dish, not heavy on oil so the fish stayed the right texture. Will definitely make for my boyfried.

      We love salmon and often have it, but usually with a mustard sauce. My husband said this was the ONLY way he liked it, but last night I fixed it Mihir's way, and he loved it!! It will be a regular in our home from now on!
