Steamed Salmon with Stir Fried Vegetables

Posted By Kerri


After a long weekend in Sweden where we survived mostly on crisps and Daim bar ice-cream, something light with plenty of vegetables was definitely required this evening.  A quick browse through the vegetable archive of the site led me to a steamed fish dish which was exactly what I was looking for.

I started off by marinating some salmon fillets in lime juice, garlic, coriander, lemongrass and chilli.  After about 30 minutes, these went into the bamboo steamer where they sat happily for 10 minutes.  In the meantime, Stephen stir-fried some vegetables in oil, spring onion and garlic before adding some soy sauce and fish sauce just before the end and serving with some rice.

The fish was good, the vegetables were good too actually but the combination of the two wasn’t quite right.  The vegetables were too highly seasoned for the delicate fish and the more subtle flavours of the lemongrass and coriander were lost against the powerful soy sauce and fish sauce.  Another one for the “needs some work” category.

    Shame they didn’t work well together, I’ve done the same many a time. I do a really similar steamed salmon with mint, coriander, garlic, ginger and chilli, and the accompanying steamed vegetables just get a dribble of oyster sauce and spring onion.

    Lizzie, steamed vegetables sound like a good idea with that sort of dish, we’ll definitely try those next time, thanks!
