How To Steam Salmon

Learning how to cook salmon is a relatively simple process. On the other hand, there's always the risk of ruining an expensive piece of fish. Add salmon to your repertoire of home-cooked meals! This step-by-step guide will show you how to steam salmon without burning down your house.

Step 1: Choose the right size pan.

When it comes to cooking salmon, size does matter. If you have a small pan, you'll need to cook the fish in batches. But if you have a large pan, you'll be able to cook everything at once—and trust me, that's what you want.

Step 2: Season the salmon.

Next, it's time to season the salmon. I like to keep things simple with just salt and pepper, garlic powder, white wine, but feel free to get creative with your seasoning. If you're feeling adventurous, try adding some lemon juice or dill.

Step 3: Heat up the water.

Now it's time to heat up the water. You'll want to bring it to a boil before adding the salmon. Once the water is boiling, reduce the heat so that it's just simmering.

Step 4: Add the salmon.

Carefully add the salmon into the steamer basket, put it in the middle of the pan and cover it with a lid. Depending on the thickness of your salmon, it will take between six and eight minutes for it to cook through.

Step 5: Remove the salmon from the pan and enjoy!

Once the salmon is cooked through, remove it from the pan and enjoy! I like to serve mine with some rice and vegetables, but you can really eat it however you want.

That's all there is to it! Just follow these simple steps and you'll be enjoying delicious home-cooked salmon in no time!
