Steamed Salmon with Chili-Tamari Sauce

makes 2 servings


2 6 oz. salmon filets

1⁄2 cup water 

1 Tbsp. chopped cilantro leaves 

2 Tbsp. low-sodium tamari

2 Tbsp. sesame oil

1 Tbsp. minced ginger

3 minced garlic cloves 

1 Tbsp. chili paste

1 Tbsp. honey

Black pepper to taste

Lime wedges for garnish

Fresh cilantro for garnish 


1. Season filets with black pepper.

2. Line a steamer basket with parchment paper and put the filets in there. 

3. Cover and steam for about 12 minutes or until the fish is done. (*If you don’t have a steamer, add 1⁄2 inch of water to a sauté pan with a tight- fitting lid. Place salmon directly in the pan with water and steam as directed above.) 

4. Bring the water, cilantro, tamari, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, chili paste, and honey to a simmer in a small pan. Once simmering, turn heat to low. Taste and add more seasoning to taste. 

5. Arrange the salmon into 2 shallow bowls and pour the chili sauce on top. Garnish with lime wedge and fresh cilantro.
