I loved to use my oven to steam fish. It was fast and cleaning up was easy. That's why I named my fish oven steamed tom yam salmon. I always oven steamed my fish with Teriyaki sauce, miso paste, Chinese soy sauce, yellow bean paste and I wanted a change. I was getting bored with the same old way of steaming fish after a while. And I thought I could try it with Tom Yam paste, but not just the paste alone as I wanted some kick. So, I added an extra sauce in there to make it better. Read more to find out.
I likes this as it was a little spicy, a little sour and went really well with rice. Took less than 15 minutes and you would have a delicious dinner waiting for you.
2 pieces of salmon fillets
2 Tbsp. of tom yam paste
1 Tbsp. of chili paste with soy bean oil
1 Tbsp. of hot water
1 Tbsp. of key lime juice
Cilantro leaves for garnish, cut cilantro stem for steaming together with fish
1. In a bowl, mix together tom yam paste, hot water, chili paste in soy bean oil. Set aside.
2. Rinse salmon. In a baking pan, line a piece of aluminum foil, big enough to cover the salmons. Add two pieces of salmon fillets on the aluminum foil, spread the top with the prepared paste and cilantro stems. Add the lime juice. Then, wrap the foil to seal the fish. It has to be completely sealed.
3. Put into a preheated 450'F oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. How long depends on how thick your fillets are.
4. When done, take it out of the oven, carefully open the foil and garnish it with cilantro. Serve hot!
