Sake Steamed Sockeye Salmon

This recipe serves:  6
1 stalk lemon grass, split lengthwise
2 cups water
2 cups sake
10 slices ginger, 1/8-inch thick
2 star anise pods
1 orange peel
1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets, cut into 6 portions
lime wedges, for garnish
Cooking Instructions
1. Bruise the lemon grass with the back of your knife to help release the aromatics.

2. Set up your steamer (we use a large saucepan or a wok with a Chinese bamboo steamer set over it.) Place the lemon grass, water, sake, ginger, star anise and orange peel in the bottom of your steamer (the saucepan or wok.) Bring to a boil.

3. Lay the salmon fillets in the steamer basket and cover with the steamer lid. Steam until the salmon is just done, about 4 to 5 minutes.

4. Serve the salmon fillets garnished with lime wedges.

Serving Size: 4 oz. salmon
