How do I steam a salmon fillet that has the skin on?

Never cooked salmon before and want to steam it. It has skin on one side. How do I cook it in a bamboo steamer?!

You can cook it with or without the skin, up to you. 8 -10 minutes in a steamer will do it. start checking it at 8 minute mark for doneness. I like it a little on the undercooked side because it will usually cook through on the plate. I have seen it cooked either skin side up or down, I would do skin down. The flavor is very mild when you steam it so make sure you season it. I like to put some lemon juice , salt and pepper or you can use teriyaki if you want it Asian style . It is really good steamed. put some veggies in there with the fish or on a separate level. let me know if you have any other questions.

The salmon itself with dill, thyme, garlic, and lemon.

The sides are sautéed asparagus (rendered with garlic and bacon) and herbed fingerling potatoes.
