My family likes salmon sashimi the most. Yet sometimes, we’ve got leftover salmon or want to try something different, this salmon fried rice will be up on our menu. We’d like to order this rice dish from the nearby Japanese restaurant as well. At home, this rice dish could be whipped up within 20 minutes or less as long as all the ingredients are in your fridge.
Let’s roll up the sleeves. Stir fry the diced button mushrooms first. Fresh mushrooms will release a bit of water when heated. Continue to cook, then you’ll find the water will dry up. Cook until they’re softened. Don’t ever cook too long though.
I reckon whisked eggs as the soul of fried rice. Make sure not to let the eggs be overcooked, as I don’t want to serve the rice without a soul.
I often preheat the rice in a microwave oven whenever using leftover rice. Loosen up the rice with chopsticks or forks before tossing into the fried eggs. Not only this method helps shorten the cooking time, but also helps every grain to be heated evenly and coated with the seasonings nicely.
A hint of ginger will subtlety enhance the flavour of the rice. If you desire stronger spicy flavour, go ahead. The heat of the ginger will surprise your taste buds.
The valued omega-3 oil released from the salmon while frying will be absorbed by the fried rice. Thus, you can add less oil when frying rice, making the rice more healthy and tasty.
How about salmon sashimi with fried rice? It’s a good idea because I tried before. Simply add the salmon after all other ingredients are added. Quickly stir to combine salmon with rice.
Toss in mushrooms and peas.
There you go. Yummy salmon fried rice for an empty stomach!
