1/4 tsp
fresh pepper, to season
skinless salmon fillets
1 tbsp
1/4 cup
granulated sugar
1/4 cup
4 tsp

  • COMBINE carrots with cabbage and cilantro in a medium bowl. Drizzle with 3 tbsp lime juice, sriracha and salt. Season with fresh pepper. Set aside. Cut salmon fillets into 1 1/2-in.-square pieces.
  • HEAT a large frying pan over medium-high. Add canola oil, then salmon. You may need to cook salmon in 2 batches. Cook until golden, 2 to 3 min per side. Transfer to a plate. Wipe pan clean with paper towels.
  • RETURN frying pan to heat over medium. Add granulated sugar and water. Cook, tilting the pan occasionally to help the sugar melt evenly, until dark amber, about min. Add remaining 1 tbsp lime juice, fish sauce and garlic. Cook until caramel is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 1 more min. Return salmon to pan. Toss gently. Cook until warm, min. Sprinkle with green onion. Serve with carrot slaw.
