 Ingredients List

  • 2 ts Cornstarch
  • 2 tb Dry sherry
  • 1 tb Peanut oil
  • 2 tb Fermented black beans
  • 1 ts Minced fresh ginger
  • 1 ts Minced garlic
  • 2/3 c Chicken broth
  • 1 tb Oyster sauce
  • 2 ts Dark soy sauce
  • 6 (4-oz) salmon steaks; 1"
  • -thick
  • 1/4 c Vegetable oil
  • 1/4 c Thinly sliced green onions;
  • -include some tops


Combine cornstarch and sherry; add peanut oil, black beans, ginger, garlic,
broth, oyster sauce and soy sauce. Stir until well blended (or process in
blender or food processor until blended). Set aside. Prepare a bed of hot
coals or preheat broiler. Adjust barbecue grill 4-5 inches above coals;
position oven rack so fish will be 4-5 inches below heat source. Lightly
grease grill or rack. Cook about 3 minutes, then rotate 1/4 turn and cook
2-3 minutes longer to create a crisscross pattern. Turn fish over, cook
other side same way (total cooking time is 10-12 minutes). To check
doneness, pierce center of salmon with a fork; if flesh is opaque and
flakes readily, fish is done. Don't overcook! Place fish on warmed plates
and top with a few spoonfuls of sauce, letting it run over edges. Garnish
with green onions. Makes 6 servings.
