I found this recipe on a friend's web site and decided to give this a try. I use a small rice cooker (1 liter) with a steamer tray, a steamer basket in a pot works equally as well. The size of the steamer basket, how many eggs, size of the eggs, if eggs are layered, and even elevation will play a role in the time to get perfect hard cooked eggs.

Servings: eggs
Instructions
  1. Add about 1 to 1 1/2 inches of water to your rice cooker insert and add the steamer tray and cover, if using a pot with a steamer basket, add the basket then add water to where it just touches the bottom of the steamer basket then cover. Turn the rice cooker to Cook setting and for a pot, turn to medium to high heat. Get the water boiling and making steam.
  2. Add the eggs to the steamer tray once the water is boiling, for a pot, remove from heat, add the eggs then put back on the heat. For a pot, adjust the heat needed to maintain a gentle boil.
  3. Set your timer for 6 minutes for soft cooked and 10 minutes for hard cooked with a slightly soft yolk center, or 12-15 minutes for fully cooked through yolks. (I used 15 minutes and the eggs were perfect). If you are using two layers of eggs, increase the time by 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Place a large bowl in the sink and turn on the water, when the time is up on the eggs, transfer the eggs with a slotted spoon into the water in the sink, keep the water running into the bowl for 5 to 10 minutes to cool the eggs.
  5. When the eggs are cooled, take each egg and crack all over and return to the water. Once all eggs are cracked, start peeling them, rinse off any shell fragments, place in another bowl, cover, and refrigerate until used.

For here in Thailand, think Pangasius, which is already boneless and skinless, or go with Barramundi but you will have to fillet those yourself. This is a quick meal to put together. This uses the common Cook/Warm rice cooker with a steamer basket. If you don't have a steamer basket, just continue reading to see how to do that. This is perfect for a small rice cooker.

Instructions
  1. For the fish, Pangasius would be perfect but you can use any boneless and skinless fillets you prefer. Cut each fillet in half. For this recipe, 3-4 fillet pieces would fit in an even layer in the steamer basket.
  2. Rinse and add rice to your rice cooker pot, add water (chicken broth would be ideal here but not required) per your cooker's manufacturer suggestion (normally first knuckle up from your index finger tip). If you wish to steam a vegetable, like broccoli with the rice, add a pinch more liquid. Set the rice cooker to Cook.
  3. While the rice (and maybe vegetable) is cooking, place a sheet of foil in the steamer basket and push down to form an edge so no oil leaks out. Rub the olive oil on both sides of the fish, season with salt and pepper as desired, place fish on the foil, fold the foil over the steamer basket. IF YOU DO NOT have a steamer basket that came with rice cooker, prepare the foil the same way, making sure there is raised sides all the way around to prevent the oil from going into the rice. At about 15 minutes into cooking the rice, add the steamer basket to the cooker or add the foil pouch directly on top of the rice, and let the cooker switch to Warm setting, a lot of this depends on your rice cooker and how long it takes to cook 1 cup of rice. If the fillets are think, put this in a few minutes earlier.
  4. When the cooker switches to Warm, remove the fish and check that, it should easily flake with fork indicating it is done.
  5. Scoop out some rice into a small bowl, place a plate over the bowl, invert the plate while hold the bowl as well, place a fillet on top, place vegetables on the side, serve.

Marinade

Recipe Notes

The chicken, maybe 35 Baht, everything else is very cheap and probably on hand. For 3 servings, this is about 35 cents per serving.

  4. When the rice cooker switches to Warm, fluff the rice with a fork. Taste for saltiness, add fish sauce to adjust, and if too salty, add a squeeze or two of lemon or lime juice.
  5. Serve as a side dish with any Asian or Indian dish.
Recipe Notes

Saffron is the pricey item but just a very small bit is used, this is an expensive spice regardless of your location. Overall, this is still a low cost dish.

Ingredients
For the Salmon
For the Lime Sauce
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Heat your steamer, rice cooker or pot with a steamer insert.
  2. Rinse the salmon steaks, pat dry, and sprinkle salt on both sides. Divide the prepared vegetables for the Salmon into two parts. On a heat proof plate that will fit in your steamer, add one part of the veggies, place the salmon on top, place the second part of the veggies on top of the salmon. Top with the 3 remaining lime slices.
  3. When your steamer is hot, quickly, but carefully plate the plate in the steamer, a pair of steamer handles to lift the plate would be ideal. Cover and let steam for 5-10 minutes or until the salmon is just cooked through and flakes with a fork.
  4. While the salmon is steaming, prepare the lime sauce by mixing all the Sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  5. When the salmon is cooked, quickly open the steamer and lift out the plate, pour out the water that collected on the plate, then pour the sauce over the salmon and place the plate back in the steamer for 5 more minutes.
  6. Remove from the steamer and serve.
Recipe Notes

For 69 Baht per fillet, this is about $2.03 per serving. High cost but I think ok for a once in a while, healthy meal.
