Ingredients

  • 12

    ounces salmon, skinless fillets, cut into 2 inch chunks

  • 2

    tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2

    tablespoons fish sauce

  • 2

    tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 2

    teaspoons granulated sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon fresh hot green chiles

  • ½

    teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • 2

    tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped garlic

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped onion

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped green onions

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

In a bowl, combine salmon and soy sauce. Toss gently to season the salmon evenly. Set aside for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, chiles and salt and stir well. Set aside. Heat a wok or large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and swirl to coat the pan. Add garlic and onion and toss well. Cook, tossing often, until softened and fragrant, about 1 minute. Add salmon mixture and spread into a single layer. Cook, undisturbed, until edges change color, about 1 minute. Gently turn and cook other side, undisturbed, for 30 seconds. Toss gently. Add fish sauce mixture, pouring in around the sides of the pan. Cook, tossing gently once or twice, until salmon is cooked through and evenly seasoned with sauce, 1 to 2 minutes more. Add green onions and cilantro and toss to mix well. Transfer to a serving plate. Serve hot or warm.
