1 small bunch of Coriander
3 Tbs light soya sauce
2 tbs Thai fish sauce
2 tbs brown sugar
1 teaspoon sesam oil

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!
