I liked this recipe. Subtle flavors were interesting. However, I may poach the fish in a pan with the ingredients next time, rather than stea I think more of these unique flavors will be in each bite....
It was kind of bland, even with all the strong tasting ingredient, and it didn't taste particularly Chinese. I think the amount of chicken broth should be reduced. It dilutes the taste, plus you accumulate quite an amount of water when steaming already. Maybe I will give it a try another day, with a much concentrated sauce on top.
My husband loved this recipe! He has never liked salmon until he tried this one. I did not steam the salmon, but baked it instead.
This recipe works best if it's put into pan without holes and allowed to poach in the juices. The fish absorbs all of the wonderful flavors and you can ladle the sauce over white rice. YUMMY!
This was great. My husband and I both thought it tasted really good, was very simple and fast to make.
We don't have a steamer (well, we do but it's packed up right now) so we put the salmon in a glass pie plate and put that on top of an inverted stainless steel bowl in a large shallow stock pot. Worked great.
I used white salmon and tripled the amount of ginger. Turned out great. I would recommend Imagine Foods' Organic Free Range Chicken Broth for lots of flavor.
Great recipe. Tastes very similar to my boyfriend's mother's salmon recipe & it also has the same ingredients! The only thing I recommend is reducing the amount of chicken broth and adding a little more red pepper flakes, otherwise everything is yummy. Also, instead of steaming mine, I broiled it -- makes the flavors combine in the fish better.
So delicious I found myself snacking on it in the wee hours of the morning. Wonderful cold too! This is wonderful served with ramen or soba noodles also might be good with some other vegetables steamed along with salmon. MMMMMMM!
