Boil water in a dip pan or a large potIMG_1051

Put  your plate with salmon in boiled water, waterfront should NOT over the plate with salmon(You can put some sticks between plate and pan to lift the plate over water)IMG_1053

Move the fish to another dish, no need for the sauce and all the spices that were with.

  • The salmon I used is about 3-4 cm thick that steamed for 4 min. The time of steaming can varies from 3-5 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish
  • I used salmon, but it also can use other types of fish
