Cooking Trader Joe's (thin) Wild Alaskan Salmon Fillets

Jim Leff | Oct 10, 200701:35 PM     16

I've been eating a lot of wild salmon, because it's healthy 'n delicious. I mostly steam it and serve it, sauceless, with whole grains and vegs (at home, I'm mostly a startlingly unchowhoundish hippy/health food cook...for balance).

I just noticed that Trader Joe's sells frozen wild salmon, and I bought some. Unfortunately, their fillets are much thinner than the stuff I'd been buying elsewhere, so I'm a little worried about overcooking, what to do with it, etc.

Any comments on skillfully preparing this stuff? It seems too thin to just let my food steaming contraption have at it (which works with more forgiving thicker cuts).
