Preparation

Marinade

  1. In a bowl or sealable bag, combine all the ingredients. 


Salmon

  1. Add the salmon to the marinade and coat well. Refrigerate for about 2 hours.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Spoon the sauce over the salmon and serve with jasmine rice and green vegetables.
