To prepare black-bean sauce, heat 1 teaspoon oil in a medium saucepan over
medium-high heat. Add onion, ginger, and garlic; saute 5 minutes or until
tender. Stir in sherry. Bring to a boil; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup
(about 2 minutes). Add tomatoes; reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes. Stir in
black beans and next 5 ingredients (black beans through 1/4 teaspoon
pepper). Remove from heat.

To prepare salmon, sprinkle 1 side of each fillet with 1/4 teaspoon pepper
and salt. Gently press 1 cilantro sprig onto center of each fillet. Add hot
water to a large shallow dish to a depth of 1 inch. Place 1 rice paper
sheet in dish of water. Let stand 30 seconds. Remove sheet from water.
Place sheet on a flat surface; let stand 30 seconds. Place 1 fillet,
cilantro side down, in the center of sheet. Fold edges of sheet over
fillet; press seams to seal. Cover with a damp towel to prevent fish packet
from drying. Repeat procedure with remaining fish and rice paper sheets.
Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Add fish packets, cilantro sides down, to skillet; cook 4 minutes on each
side or until fish is done.

Steam broccoli, covered, 2 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Place 1 fish packet on each of 4 serving plates; spoon about 2/3 cup
black-bean sauce around each fish packet. Arrange 1/2 cup rice and 1
broccoli spear on each plate. Yield: 4 servings.
