Visited my sister today and she gave me a piece of salmon. Since hubby has a company dinner to attend to, decided to improvise this Thai Steamed Fish recipe for this one person meal.

1 slice of salmon
2 stalks lemongrass
1 small red chili
2 salted plums, crushed and remove seeds
1 stalk coriander cut into sections and leave the root for boiling in water
5 slices galangal
1 tablespoon fish sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
dash of pepper
1 bowl of water

1. Boil lemongrass, chili, salted plums, coriander root, galangal in water then add fish sauce, pepper and sugar to season.
2. Add salmon and serve once its cooked. Avoid overcooking salmon as the fish will be hard.
3. Garnish salmon soup with coriander.

Alternative: you can use the soup to steam fish. Do not add fish into soup. Steam fish on ginger and spring onion until almost cook, and then pour the soup over fish and continue to steam for a while.
