In the hopes of adding more yummy fish to our weekly diets I’ve solicited the help of my mom who gave me her famous steamed Black Bean Garlic Salmon recipe!   This recipe has everything that all of our meals should strive for,  it’s tasty, easy to make, healthy and extremely affordable!  Let’s remind you of the benefits of eating Salmon include:  great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, iron, calcium, and selenium.  Salmon also helps to boost your metabolism, cardio-vascular health, vision, brain and nervous system.

  3. 4 tsp of corn starch
  4. 2 tsp of black bean garlic sauce

  1. Slice the ginger into thin strips
  2. Spread the ginger strips onto your dish making a thin bed but don’t use all the ginger.

  1. That looks simple and delicious. I like the step by step pictures and instructions. I’m going to try it. BTW, how did you steam it? Did you use a bamboo steamer?
