    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    This is one of Martin Yan's recipes that I found to be an elegant smoked salmon. The salmon is easy to prepare and to smoke. A good heavy duty WOK with a lid is necessary. Chinese Oolong tea is a very good black tea that can be used if available in your area.

    1. 1
      In a mixing bowl, whisk together soy sauce, Chinese rice wine, minced ginger and 2 teaspoons of sugar to make a marindade.
    2. 2
      If using frozen salmon, thaw before using.
    3. 3
      Cut salmon crosswise into 1 inch wide strips and add to marinade; turn to coat and marinate for 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Line a heavy duty WOK with one large piece of aluminum foil letting the foil hang over the edge of the WOK.
    5. 5
      In a separate bowl, combine brown sugar, long grain rice, Oolong tea and star anise for the smoking mixture.
    6. 6
      Spread mixture evenly in bottom of foil lined WOK.
    7. 7
      Set a round wired rack over the mixture; should be about 1 inch above the mixture. If necessary, scrunch some aluminum foil into 4 balls and place on top of the mixture to elevate the wire rack.
    8. 8
      Place the WOK, uncovered, over high-heat for about 5 - 8 minutes or until the mixture begins to smoke.
    9. 9
      Place the marinated salmon strips on the wire rack, skin side down.
    10. 10
      Place cover on WOK, reduce heat to medium-low and continue to smoke until salmon strips turn a rich deep color, about 10 - 12 minutes. Do not remove lid during the first 10 minutes of smoking time.
    11. 11
      Check for doneness with a fork; salmon should flake easily.
    12. 12
      Turn the heat off, remove WOK to a cool element and let stand for 5 minutes before removing lid.
    13. 13
      In a small bowl, stir together cornstarch and cold water until smooth.
    14. 14
      Meanwhile, pour the remaining salmon marinade into a small saucepan, and heat on medium-high heat and bring to boil.
    15. 15
      Slowly add cornstarch mixture to the marinade, stirring continuously until sauce thickens slightly, about 2 minutes.
    16. 16
      Serve salmon with a sprinkle of sauce, cooked rice and hot vegetables.
