Season the fish fillets with salt and freshly ground black pepper and steam the fish, over water on a rack in a wok or large frying pan, covering with a lid.

Depending on the size and thickness of your salmon pieces, this should vary between 6-10 minutes. The fish should change colour from pinky orange to light pink.

Meanwhile, put the fish stock, garlic and ginger into a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and boil gently until thickened, about 4-5 minutes.

Add the tomato pieces and cook for a minute more. Remove from the heat and whisk in the chopped butter a few pieces at a time; keep the sauce hot. Transfer the fish to serving plates and pour the sauce over each piece of salmon.

Spoon a little of the avocado salsa on to each serving plate and scatter with the coriander leaves. Finish each serve with a drizzle of olive oil and garnish lime wedges. Serve immediately.
