Salmon Fried Rice

I came across a recipe for salmon fried rice while looking for ideas on what to do with rice to make it more interesting and that would go with salmon cooked in ginger and soy sauce. Of course I decided to cook something I only had 3 of the ingredients for - salmon, rice and garlic! But the idea of salmon fried rice just sounded so good last night, I wanted a bowl of something warming that would keep me away from the cookies and mince pies!
The recipe suggested it was a great way to use left-over salmon, but I can't say left-over salmon is something I've ever come across before!

I had frozen salmon to use so I cooked that plain in the oven while I boiled some rice.

Stir fried onion and garlic in groundnut oil with Chinese 5 spice and some pickled ginger.

Added the cooked rice and flaked salmon and stir fried for just a few minutes before adding crushed chilli almonds and a couple of tablespoons of soy sauce.

Very simple and delicious!

I'm trying to think of what to do with cod for tonight, I'm thinking spaghetti, olives, chilli and tomato with basil.


  1. Yummy I love salmon and I love rice so I'm guessing I'd love your dish! The cod sounds delish x x

  2. Ooh that sounds lush too. I love salmon and rice so I bet I would LOVE this!
