Salmon Cubes with Oyster SauceFeatured by Jason Stephens.
1 ½ pounds skinless salmon fillet, cut into 1 ½-inch cubes
2 Tbs. oyster sauce
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 fresh long red chile, thinly sliced on the bias
4 scallions, cut into 1-inch lengths
1 Tbs. dry white wine
3 Tbs. chopped basil
2 Tbs. water
Steamed rice and lime or lemon wedges, for serving
In a large bowl, toss the salmon cubes with the oyster sauce and season with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil. Add the salmon and cook over moderately high heat, turning once, until browned but barely cooked through, about 6 minutes. Reduce the heat to moderate; add the chile and scallions. Cook until the scallions soften, about 2 minutes. Stir in the wine and water and simmer until the salmon is just cooked through, 1 minute. Stir in the basil. Transfer the salmon to plates and serve with rice and lime wedges.
