Crispy Skinned Salmon with Sesame and Ginger Steamed Asian Veg


  • 2 Ora King Salmon Steaks
  • 1 bunch of bok choy
  • 1 bunch of broccolini
  • A handful of shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 cup white cabbage
  • Small knob of ginger
  • 2 small cloves of garlic
  • Sesame oil
  • Salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 180C.
  2. Roughly chop veg including garlic and ginger and add to a steamer basket, drizzle with a very small amount of sesame oil (it tends to be quite strong so you can use a light hand). Steam over a little boiling water for 6-10 mins until tender.
  3. Salt the flesh and skin of the salmon and place skin side down on a nice hot pan (with a drizzle of olive oil) for about 4 mins.
  4. Transfer to the oven for a further 7 mins. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the thickest part of the fish - it’s ready to come out and rest when it's 52C or higher. Rest for about 5 mins once removed from the oven.
  5. Remove from the heat and sprinkle steamed veg with a little salt to taste, toss through using some tongs, then plate it up with your salmon on top. Yum!
