   Judging when seafood is cooked just right is easier
   than most people think. As fish cooks, it turns from
   translucent to opaque. Don't be afraid to check by
   inserting a thin knife into the center or thickest
   part just before you think it is It is important to
   remove it from heat just before it is done because
   fish continues to cook off the heat. A general
   guideline to follow is cook at 400! or broil for 10
   minutes per inch of thickness, measuring the fish at
   the thickest part.
   
   Saut onions and peppers in oil in a medium skillet
   over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes or until
   softened. Whisk together remaining . ingredients
   except salmon, salt and pepper. Pour into d skillet
   with onion-pep- per mixture and bring to a boil,
   stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and keep warm.
   Cut center bones and skin from salmon steaks and cut
   into 1-inch chunks. Season with salt and pepper. Place
   on a greased baking sheet and broil for 3-5 minutes or
   until fish just flakes when tested with a for k. Serve
   salmon nuggets with a bowl of sweet and sour sauce for
   dipping. Makes 4-6 servings.
   
   ADULT VARIATION: Leave salmon steaks whole. Place on a
   greased baking sheet and broil for 10 minutes per inch
   of thickness or until fish just flakes when tested
   with a fork. Spoon sweet and sour sauce over the steak
