Oven-Steamed Salmon

Back to the Seafood Index


Whisk the lemon juice, salt, and pepper together, then add the olive oil, olives, and caper berries and whisk again. This makes enough dressing for a whole half a salmon, so you may want to cut down on the quantities here.

Pre-heat your oven to 300F and boil a large pan of water.

Place the salmon on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and put it in the oven, with the pan of boiling water on the shelf below. The fish will be done in 25–30 minutes.

Although cooked through, the salmon will retain its deep orange colour.

Let the fish cool to room temperature and serve with the dressing poured over the salmon.
