Steamed Salmon With Lemon Dressing

28 Feb


  • 2 TBS lemon zest, blanched
  • 2 TBS lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 TBS Extra Virgin olive oil
  • 16 oz. white wine
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 4 oz. leek, chopped
  • a sprig of fresh thyme
  • 2 tsp peppercorns, crushed
  • 2 (6 oz.) salmon steaks

To make dressing, combine lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Whisk in oil.

Combine the wine, bay leaf, leek, thyme, and peppercorns in the bottom of a steamer (In the pan or wok).

Season salmon with salt and pepper and place in steamer basket. (I lay my fish on top of parchment paper to prevent it sticking to the steamer) Cover steamer and bring liquid to a boil. Cook fish until done, approx 4-6 minutes.

Plate salmon, spoon dressing over top.
