I mentioned before that I love to make steamed foods. Those who are not aware that steamed foods can also be very tasty and is full of nutrients value for them I would like to comment that it is very easy to prepare by keeping in mind the taste and moist texture. Usually at night after returning from a heavy packed schedule, I quickly freshen up and prepare this dish to lighten my soul and mind. It’s a must try.

- 2 lb (900 gram) Salmon cut into 2 fillets
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1 tablespoon Soy sauce
- 1⁄8 teaspoon Ground white pepper
- 2 Scallions cut into 4-inch pieces
- 4 slices Ginger
- 1 teaspoon Sesame oil
Thoroughly rinse the fish in cold water and pat dry.
Now put the fillets in a 9-inch shallow heatproof bowl.
Drizzle the soy sauce, salt, and pepper over the salmon and sprinkle with the scallions and ginger.
Cut the lemon in half (crosswise) and then cut the half lemon into 4 slices and put on the fish.
Then juice the remaining half lemon and drizzle over the fish.
Now put 1-inch high steamer rack in a 14-inch flat-bottomed wok, add water to a depth of 3/4 inch and bring to a boil over high heat.
Carefully put the bowl on the rack, cover the lid and steam it for 8 to 10 minutes.
To taste the fish whether it's done poke the thickest part of the fish with a chopstick or fork. The fish should flake if done. If not done steam it for 2 to 3 minutes more or until the fish just flakes. Be sure to check the water level from time to time and replenish, if necessary with boiling water.
When it is done, carefully remove the bowl from the wok and drizzle the sesame oil over the fillets.
Serve the steamed salmon with lemon steaming hot.
It's a complete dish which you can serve with Grilled Veggies or Panzanella Salad and stir up your appetite with a good beginning. It will be a healthier option and will also add the tenderness of the salmon fish inside your mouth. So better late than never.
