Steamed Salmon With Soy Glaze August 2, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

Originally, this recipe calls for green beans. I had some fresh broccoli that I needed to use up as well so I used a mix. The glaze can be a bit intense so use it sparingly at first. Overall a simply and tasty meal.


  • 3 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine or sherry
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 6-ounce pieces skinless salmon fillet
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sliced scallions
  • 6 ounces soba noodles
  • 8 ounces small green beans and broccoli mix

In a shallow dish, combine 3 tablespoons of the soy sauce, 1 tablespoon rice wine, the ginger, and garlic. Add the salmon, turn to coat, and marinate for 10 minutes.

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, and remaining ½ cup soy sauce and 1 tablespoon rice wine. Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer until ⅓ cup of sauce remains, about 3 minutes.

Fill a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket with 1 inch of water. Remove the salmon from the marinade and place in basket. Scatter scallions over salmon. Steam, covered, until salmon is opaque throughout, 4 to 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to the package directions, adding the veg for the last 3 minutes of cooking.

Serve the salmon over the noodles and beans and drizzle with the glaze.
