I just had to keep using my steamer baskets, having such tasty success with the shumai. If you don't have steamer baskets, you can easily make the same dish in a pasta pot with a strainer, or rig up your own.
Steamed Salmon with Snap Peas
- 1 salmon fillet
- 1 tsp. plum sauce
- 1 T. soy sauce
- 1 tsp. freshly-grated ginger
- 1 tsp. honey
- 12 snap peas
- 1 tsp. sesame seeds for garnish
- white pepper
Whisk together the plum sauce, soy, ginger, and honey. Set aside.
Season the salmon with salt and white pepper.
Cut a piece of parchment paper that will fit inside your steamer. Lay the snap peas out in a ladder formation. Lay the salmon on top of the peas and spoon the sauce over the salmon, reserving just a little bit of the sauce. Bring a low level of water to a boil in a wok or skillet that will allow the steamer to sit level, making sure the water does not come up high enough to touch the food.
Steam for 8 minutes.
Plate the peas and salmon and garnish with the remaining sauce and sesame seeds.
