Ingredients

Preparation

1

Season the fillets lightly on both sides with salt and pepper and set in a plate.

2

In a medium bowl, whisk together the extra virgin olive oil, the lemon juice, the white wine, the vinegar, a teaspoon of salt, the teaspoon of fennel seeds, the dill finely chopped and pink pepper grains to taste; the marinade should be well seasoned. Pour the marinade over the salmon, cover the dish with wax paper, then foil, and refrigerate for 1 hour… Consider that as long you marinade the salmon, as discolored its meat will appear. 

Some recipes require hours of marinade… I just marinade for 45 minutes, or one hour, so that the salmon remains less spongy and keeps its bright pink color.

 

3

After one hour, bring the salmon to room temperature, drain the marinade liquid, get rid of herbs or pepper grains and transfer into a bamboo steamer. Steam for 7-8 minuts over gentle boil.

Serve hot or cold with extra virgin olive oil and pink pepper in grains.

Notes

Marinated steamed salmon is a fish main course that you can side with any kind of salad or seasonal vegetables.
For steaming you might use a bamboo or a metal steamer, leaning over a pan of boiling water. To add extra flavor you can pour some fresh herbs and a shallot over the boil water.
An extra-light, delicate and summery main course, perfect for many reasons, especially because you can prepare it in advance, and store in the refrigerator for the day after, in a air tight container.
