Thai style Steamed Salmon (Salmone al vapore alla tailandese)

This is not really an Italian recipe but more the result of my travelling around...Thailand to be precise. I wanted to share it with you because the taste of this simple and healthy dish is incredible... try and let me know! I had the chance to find a very fresh small salmon at the fish market today, as I am fish addicted at the moment, I got it and cleaned up myself. It was the first time but it went quite well! You can of course buy ready to use salmon filets, it is easier, but not as tasty... and challanging  ; )

Serving 4
1 Small Salmon or 4 Salmon filets
2 Limes
1 piece of peeled fresh ginger (as big as a walnut)
2 garlic cloves
1 red chili
1 small bunch of Coriander
3 Tbs light soya sauce
2 tbs Thai fish sauce
2 tbs brown sugar
1 teaspoon sesam oil
3 Tbs water
a pinch of unrifined grey sea salt
a pinch of pepper

Wash and Clean up the salmon: cut head,  tail and fins, take out the fish bone with a small knife. Keep everything aside, you can freeze the wastes and use them later to make a fish broth.


Cut the filets, take out the skin. 

Prepare the sauce: in a small bowl pour the soya sauce, fish sauce, the juice of the 2 limes, half teaspoon of sesam oil, sugar, finely chopped garlic, grated ginger, coriander leaves and finely cut chili. Add the water and mix well till the sugar is melted.

Place the filets in a steamer. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and half teaspoon of sesam oil.
Steam for 5 minutes, be carefull : salmon cooks very quickly!

When salmon is half cooked add 2 Tbs of the  prepared sauce. Terminate the cooking.

Your  steamed Salmon in Thai sauce is ready. Place the filets on a serving plate and pour the sauce on it. Best served warm with thai parfumed rice. Buon appetito!
