Steamed Salmon with Black Beans


Up until a few years ago I didn’t even like salmon. And today I have no less than 3 absolute favourite salmon recipes to choose from. The first one comes from Ken Hom. It’s easy to prepare, although for some it’s probably already too much trouble. But I can assure you it’s worthwhile. And because you can do a lot of the preperation on forehand, it’s an ideal dish to make if you have guests for dinner. It’s light and fresh and pure and delicious. The sauce/liquid is lovely with simple steamed white rice.



450g fresh salmon fillets

Rinse and dry the salmon.
Place on a heatproof plate.

2 T black beans, rinsed and chopped
1½ T garlic, chopped
1 T fresh ginger, finely chopped or grated

Mix the above together and divide over the fillets.

Steamed Salmon with Fermented Black Beans

1½ T shaoxing ricewine
1 T light soy sauce

Mix the ricewine and soy and pour over the fillets.
Put the salmon in your steamer and steam for about 8-10 minutes. They should/could be slightly underdone. After that, sprinkle with

3 T spring onions, chopped
1 T coriander, chopped

Heat 1½ T peanutoil until steaming and carefully pour over the salmon, or actually over the spring onions and coriander.
