Prep Time
5 minutes
Cook Time
15 minutes
  • 2 portion size skinless and boneless salmon fillets (about 6 - 8 oz each)
  • 3 tablespoons thick teriyaki sauce
  • Toasted sesame seeds (optional)
  1. Rub the fish fillets with the teriyaki sauce to coat all sides.

  2. Place the fish a sheet of parchment paper. Turn your steamer, wok or double boiler with a steaming insert to high. Once the water is boiling, carefully put the salmon in the steamer by holding the sides and/or corners of the parchment paper, and cover with the lid.

  3. Steam for approximately 5 - 10 minutes, depending on desired doneness of fish.

  4. Wearing mitts, grab the ends of the parchment paper, transfer the fish to a dish and discard any water using a spatula.

  5. To serve, place salmon on a plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with a side serving of veggies or rice.
