steamed salmon

simple salmon dinner
We have been living without a stove for more than a month now and it's been quite challenging to make meals outside of BBQ and salads!  I have been deprived of baking and cooking but somehow we managed to eat well.  Fortunately I have a steamer (which I'll admit, I rarely used until recently) - and it has proven to be quite handy and actually produces some tasty and healthy food.  This is probably the easiest salmon dinner but surprisingly good.

what you need:

  • 2 salmon fillets (skin off, steamed skin doesn't taste that great)
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 handful of fresh dill
  • salt and pepper
  • tzatziki 
what to do:

  1. Thinly slice half of the lemon into discs, then squeeze the juice of the other half into the steamer dish.  Wash the dill and pat dry.
  2. Place one layer of lemon slices intermixed with the dill in the dish.
  3. Pat dry salmon fillets and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.  Nestle on top of the lemon/dill, then place the rest of the lemon slices and dill on top.    
  4. Set the steamer for 25 minutes (you may need longer if your salmon is quite thick).
  5. Serve with a side of tzatziki, pita bread and salad.  Enjoy!
