Salmon Stir Fry with Veggies is an easy way to whip up some delicious salmon – marinated cubed salmon stir fried with onions, peppers, and mushrooms! I recommend eating with rice too as the rice will soak up the yummy honey soy sauce!

Can you stir fry salmon?

Yes you can! This is basically the same as pan frying a salmon filet. However, when it is cut up in pieces, you will want to be more careful stir frying it as it could more easily fall apart.

How long do you stir fry salmon?

For this recipe, the salmon will be cut in to 1 inch chunks, which will make it cook faster than an entire salmon filet. It will be about 5 minutes of stir frying gently as to make sure it doesn’t break apart. It will then be removed from heat in order to cook the veggies, and brought back in to the cooking pan for about just a minute of stir frying before you’re complete.

How many calories in salmon stir fry?

This salmon stir fry makes about 4 serving. Each serving is about 452 calories, but that really assumes you are eating all the marinade and sauce too. Reality is you probably won’t eat every drop of it so the actual calories are probably less.

How to make salmon stir fry

First, gather your ingredients. The ingredients listed here serve about 4 people (just fyi, in my pictures I was cooking for just me, so expect that yours will look like a lot more than mine). The ingredients are:

  • 16 oz salmon
  • Marinade:
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 1/2 cup soy sauce
    • 1/4 cup honey
    • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2 bell peppers (any kind – green, red, yellow), sliced
  • 16 oz white button mushrooms, sliced

Pat the salmon down with a paper towel to dry, and then cut into 1 inch cubes and set in a mixing bowl.

In the bowl, add soy sauce, corn starch, honey, and garlic, and toss to coat. If you are about to cook it, let it marinade at the very least 15-30 minutes. If you are making this ahead, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes before cooking.

Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a cooking pan or wok, wait for the pan to heat up. Then using tongs, transfer salmon chunks in to pan, leaving some marinade in the bowl to be used later. Stir fry gently for about 5 minutes or until opaque and remove from heat.

Add onions, peppers and mushrooms, and the marinade sauce that’s left in the bowl. Stir fry for about 4 minutes or until veggies have softened.

Now, add the salmon back in to the pan. Stir fry everything together for about 1 more minute or for longer if you want it more well done. This is also a great time to taste and add salt as desired.

Remove from heat and serve!

Pin for later!

Try again. Edit: Sub broccoli and cauliflower for the mushrooms and green peppers. Or make him pick them out and give them to me. The onions are keepers!

The onions definitely help flavor the dish! You can play around and customize the veggies as you see fit! Hope you enjoy :D
