  • Fleur de sel
  • 1 firm, ripe Hass avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and thinly sliced


  1. Arrange lemon rounds on bottom of a bamboo steamer basket. Season salmon fillets with fleur de sel. Place salmon on top of lemons, and cover with steamer lid.

  2. Bring about 1 inch water to a simmer in a large skillet. Place steamer basket in water, and steam until fish is cooked through, about 7 minutes.

  3. Arrange avocado and salmon on plates. Sprinkle salmon with fleur de sel, and serve with lemon wedges.
