Ingredients

  • 1 (1 pound) salmon side, bones removed with pliers

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root

  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon mirin (Japanese sweet wine)

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

Directions

  1. Quarter or halve salmon side. Set aside.

  2. Combine chicken broth, ginger, minced onion, soy sauce, mirin, and sesame oil in a large, heavy pot. Bring liquid to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to a simmer.

  3. Place a steamer basket into the pot. Lay salmon in the steamer basket in a single layer. Cover pot and steam, 5 to 7 minutes, checking salmon for desired doneness. Remove salmon and keep warm.

  4. Boil liquid until it has reduced into a sauce, 2 to 4 minutes. Spoon over steamed salmon.
