Steaming is a fast, easy, and nutritious way to prepare salmon. It can be served warm or chilled, making it easily transportable to the office or other away-from-home dining spot.




  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 carrot, roughly chopped
  • 1 rib celery, roughly chopped
  • ½ small onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 large lemon, quartered


  • ½ cup organic mayonnaise
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped or grated
  • pinch of sea salt
  • pinch of white pepper


  • 4 (6‑ounce) skinless salmon fillets
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. In a wide 5‑ to 6‑quart pot, combine all the broth ingredients,squeezing the lemon quarters into the water and adding the lemon rinds to the pot.
  2. Place a steamer rack, either metal or nonstick silicone, in the pot. The broth level should just meet or be below the level of the steamer rack.
  3. Bring just to a boil.
  4. Turn the heat down to low, place a lid on the pot, and simmer the broth for 15 minutes to blend the flavors.
  5. While the broth is simmering, combine all the aioli ingredients in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Set aside to serve with the salmon.
  6. Sprinkle the salmon fillets with the salt and pepper.
  7. Place the salmon fillets in a single layer on the steamer rack and replace the lid.
  8. Steam the salmon for 5 to 6 minutes or until the salmon reaches an internal temperature of 145°F when tested with a digital thermometer. The fillets will be a light pink-orange color.


Serve the salmon warm or cool with 2 tablespoons of the lemon aioli per serving.
