Steamed Salmon with Coriander Oil

This is a really quick dinner, it is easy to cook just one portion or make a a family sized meal. The dish has an Asian influence with the green ginger and garlic marinade. The fish can be steamed or cooked in the microwave. The salmon will cook in five minutes and the coriander oil can be made whilst the the fish is steaming. The oil can also be made in advance and kept in the fridge for up to a week, it is also good with many other dishes. Marinate the salmon if you have time, the flavour will be better. Serve with steamed greens and some rice if desired.

To Make the Coriander Oil
Blend one bunch of coriander, a clove of garlic and three tablespoons of oil or enough oil to make a paste, add more oil to make a spreadable or spoon able sauce. The oil is necessary to prevent the coriander from oxidising or discolouring. 

To Prepare and Cook the Salmon

Finely grate a little green ginger and combine with a clove of crushed garlic. Rub the ginger mixture over the salmon and sprinkle with a few drops is sesame oil.

Place salmon on a plate covered with baking paper.

Steam for approximately five minutes or until fish is cooked, larger or thicker pieces will take longer. If microwaving the fish follow the instructions for cooking fish or cook in one minute intervals.

To Serve

Carefully lift each portion of salmon of the salmon and place on a bed of steamed greens. Spoon a little coriander oil over each portion.
