Asian-styled steamed salmon

Prep time: 15 minutes • Cook time: 10 minutes


1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

½ cup shiitake mushroom caps, rinsed and sliced (or substitute dried shiitake mushrooms)

2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced (or 2 teaspoons ground ginger)

¼ cup green onions, rinsed and chopped

1 tablespoon light soy sauce

1 tablespoon sesame oil (optional)

12-ounce salmon fillet, cut into four portions (3 ounces each)


  1. Combine chicken broth, mushroom caps, ginger, scallions, soy sauce and sesame oil (if using) in a large, shallow sauté pan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then lower heat and simmer for two to three minutes.
  2. Add salmon fillets, and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Cook gently over low heat for four to five minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork in the thickest part (to a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees).
  3. Serve one piece of salmon with ¼ cup of broth. Enjoy!
