Aromatic Steamed Salmon Fillets

If you think ‘bland’ and ‘boring’ when you see steaming in recipes, then this recipe for Aromatic Steamed Salmon Fillets could change everything.

This is one of the best ways to cook salmon fillets – they’re pretty much steamed, with just a few aromatics and vegetables.

Serves: 2


    • 125g cherry tomatoes, on the vine, if possible
    • 100g green beans, trimmed
    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    • sea salt
    • freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon paprika
    • 2 salmon fillets, about 130g each and about 3cm thick at thickest point
    • 1 lemon
    • few dill sprigs (optional)


Preheat the oven to 220’c Celsius.

Place the tomatoes and beans in a 30 x 20 x 5cm roasting tray and pour over one tablespoon of the olive oil. Toss to coat and season generously with salt and pepper. Brush the salmon fillets on both sides with olive oil, season with salt, pepper and paprika, then add to the roasting tray with the tomatoes and beans.

Thinly slice half the lemon, and arrange the slices on the fish. Squeeze the juice from the remaining lemon half over the fish and vegetables, and tuck in the dill. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 12 minutes, or until just cooked through. If the beans need a little more time, remove the fish and tomatoes from the tray and return to the oven for a few minutes.

Serve the salmon with your choice of sauce or dressing and vegetables.
