Steamed Salmon with Ginger and Chives
Chives do double duty in this simple salmon dish: They're in the marinade and also sprinkled atop the finished fish as a final flash of flavor. Cook the salmon in a steamer basket placed in a pot, as we do here; in a wok fitted with a bamboo steamer basket, as is traditional in China; or on a plate set atop a metal ring (such as a tuna can with both ends removed) in a large wide pot containing about one inch of water.

As an alternative you can use firm white fish fillets such as red snapper, grouper, or sea bass. Cook them until the center is opaque.
The rich salmon and other bold ingredients can stand up to a lusty, fruity California chardonnay, or, if you prefer to serve a red wine, a full-bodied Merlot.
