Asian Style Salmon

Salmon 4

Want to live a healthier life? Eat less processed food and more vegetables and fish!
We all know we should eat more foods that are prepared in healthy ways and steaming is one of the best cooking methods to do so. When steaming, foods retain up to 50% more nutrients and maximizes taste and color. Best of all, the Steam feature of your Rice Cooker will cook your food at a higher temperature allowing the meal to come together more quickly than alternative cooking processes.
Keep in mind that using a healthy cooking technique, like steaming, does not mean your fish will taste bland. The simple addition of seasonings will give your fish the extra flavor you crave.
Another handy hint: steam the vegetables at the same time as the fish to create a filling and nutritious meal even when there is little time to spare!

Ingredients
12 oz salmon, skinless
1 small lime, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp ginger, finely shredded or minced

Directions
Chopped green onion and cilantro for garnish.
Add two cups of water to the inner pot of the Aroma Rice Cooker.
Place a single layer of lime slices on foil lined steam tray.
Rinse fish in cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
Cut fish into pieces to fit inside the steam tray and place on top of the lime.
Combine the black pepper, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger and brush onto fish.
