    This dish is amazingly delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except for I only cooked the salmon 15 minutes. Fermented black beans were a little challenging to find, but I found them at my local asian market under the name "preserved black beans." Turns out it's the same thing as "fermented." By the way, they are not actually black beans like in mexican cooking, but soy beans cured/fermented/preserved in salt and sometimes other ingrediants like ginger. Steaming the salmon kept it moist and buttery. The black bean sauce is savory and spicy and delicious. Definitely serve with rice to soak up the extra sauce!
