Instructions
  1. Sprinkle soy sauce and garlic powder over meat side of salmon fillets, and rub to cover evenly.
  2. Spray a skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Cook salmon skin-side down for 5-7 minutes, then flip. Use a spatula to carefully peel skin off salmon, and discard. Cook fish another 5-7 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove to a plate lined with paper towels.
  3. Pour off as much salmon oil from the skillet as desired. (You can leave it all for a richer sauce, leave a little, or rinse the skillet completely and spray it with cooking spray again.) Heat skillet over medium-high heat again.
  4. Add asparagus and onion, and stir fry until tender-crisp, around 8 minutes. Add black bean sauce and vinegar, and stir to coat.
  5. While asparagus is cooking, chop salmon into large, bite-sized pieces. It might break up a bit when you stir it into the vegetables, so 2″ pieces are good.
  6. Add salmon to pan, and gently stir to coat fish in sauce. Allow to cook 1-2 minutes longer until fish is warm. Serve over cooked rice.
