One of the things I always keep in the house is frozen seafood, such as salmon or mahi mahi, and frozen veggies. It’s so easy to work with them because unlike frozen meat and poultry, frozen fish and shrimp actually defrost relatively quickly!

About Salmon

By the way – did you know that Salmon is the most popular fish to eat in the USA? I guess that’s not surprising, it’s delicious and it’s actually full of health benefits! Salmons are rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, high in Vitamin B, and a great source of Potassium just to name a few.

If you’re wondering which fishes rank 2nd and 3rd in the states, we have Tuna in second place and Tilapia in third. Here’s a list of the 7 most popular fish in the USA if you want to read more.

About the Ingredients

This Salmon Fried Rice is such an easy dinner idea especially if you have leftover cooked rice. In fact, this is the BEST way to make fried rice. you want to use leftover overnight cooked rice as the rice will be more firm and make it easier to separate and stir fry!

While I wrote this recipe with Salmon, you can technically use any other type of fish you may have – tuna, mahi mahi, grouper, cod, etc.

For the frozen veggies, you can choose your favorite types of frozen veggies! The most common is peas and carrots and corn, however, some mixes will have green beans, or broccoli and cauliflower, and those will also work too.

The only thing to note is if you have larger or chunkier frozen veggies, it may take just a bit longer to heat up when we are cooking them.

How many calories in salmon fried rice?

If you are following my recipe, then the estimated amount of calories per serving is X.

Of course if you are going to have more than one serving then you will have to do some math to figure out a more accurate amount of calories you’ve consumed.

How to make Salmon Fried Rice

First gather your ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp cooking oil, separated
  • 6 oz salmon, cooked
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 cup frozen mixed veggies (corn, peas, carrots, etc.)
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • Salt to taste
  • Green onions, chopped

In a large wok or frying pan, add 1 tbsp cooking oil and cook salmon over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes, then flip it to cook the other side for another 2 minutes.

Remove the salmon from the skillet and use a fork and knife to tear it in to large chunks.

Add 1 tbsp cooking oil, garlic and mixed veggies in to wok and cook for about 2 minutes, or until vegetables begin to soften, stirring occasionally.

With the spatula, move vegetables to one side of the skillet, if the pan is dry go ahead and add a little more oil. Then add the beaten eggs to the other side, and stir it to scramble. I actually usually just crack the eggs in to the pan and then scramble to skip beating the eggs resulting in an extra bowl to wash 🙂

Add the salmon back in to cooking pan, along with rice, soy sauce, sesame oil, and salt to taste, and stir fry everything to blend together. Cook for about 3 minutes more minutes.

Sprinkle chopped green onions on top (optional), remove from heat and serve!
