Serves 4 :
250 g green beans and/or mangetout (snow peas)
4 romanesco broccoli florets* (optional)
2 cm fresh ginger, peeled
1 courgette (150g)
4 salmon fillets (600g)
zest of ½ organic lime
salt, pepper
8 g bunch chives
1 organic lime (juice + zest)
3 tsp soy sauce
2 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp grapeseed or vegetable oil
1 cm fresh ginger, grated
1Fill the metal bowl with 500ml water. Place the green beans and/or mangetout,
and the romanesco broccoli florets* in the steamer basket. Run the
STEAM programme 20 minutes.
2Thinly slice the ginger and courgette. Cut 4 pieces of baking paper in rectangles
of 30 x 20cm; lightly brush each sheet with oil. Divide the sliced courgette and
ginger between the rectangles, and top with the salmon fillets. Sprinkle with a little
lime zest and season.
3Close the papillotes* by joining the long sides of the paper and folding them over;
then fold the ends underneath like gift-wrapped package.
4Place the papillotes* in the steamer basket on top of the vegetables. Run the
STEAM programme, 15 minutes/100 °C. Add a few more minutes if the fillets are thick.
5Place one papillote* on each plate, open, and place the green vegetables beside
the salmon. Serve with the Japanese sauce.
Japanese sauce

I halved the recipe for two serves. Veges only needed 15 minutes. Next time, I may try cooking veges and fish over two layers at the same time on 100degrees.

This recipe is ok.


I prepared this recipe according to the directions, the vegetables were overcooked, I would reduce the cooking time to 15mins and test after 10 mins. The salmon cooked for 20 mins at 100c was perfect. I also reduced the amount of ginger in the salmon papillote and the Japanese sauce. Very tasty I will definitely try again


STEAM programme is an automatic programme so you don't need to change settings (if there is no specific info)


Please could you update to say how many minutes to steam the salmon for? Thank you!
