Prep/Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: Serves two people


  • 12 oz Salmon Filet

Using a Rice Cooker to Steam Veggies


  1. Wash and cube the red potatoes.
  2. Wash asparagus and cut in half.
  3. Place the potatoes in the steamer (I use a rice cooker with a steam basket which works really well) and turn on. Leave potatoes in for about 5 minutes and then add the asparagus on top and continue steaming for another 15 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 F.
  5. Cover a cooking sheet with aluminum foil and apply about a tablespoon of olive oil.
  6. Place the salmon filet skin-side down on the olive oil. Doing this will make the skin adhere to the foil and you'll be left with a perfect. skinless filet when it's all done.
  7. Salt and pepper the top of the filet and bake for 14-16 minutes. Thicker filets may need a little extra time. Check the fish with a fork to see if it flakes off easily.
  8. Remove fish from oven and the veggies from the steamer. Serve with a lemon wedge and enjoy!
