Thai Steamed Salmon with Vegetables and Coconut Rice

Thai Salmon and RiceThis recipe for Thai Steamed Salmon with vegetables and coconut rice is such a handy go-to recipe as it is seriously delicious and easy but also really low in fat. I often steam fish in the oven this way, by wrapping it up in a tin foil parcel with other ingredients for flavour and sealing it as tight as possible. You can use whatever additional flavours you like but if you’re trying to keep the calories down it’s a good idea to focus on ingredient from South East Asia as these are all low in fat but bursting with flavour. Also, because salmon is an oily fish, I think an oily/creamy/buttery sauce would be too rich.
