Salmon Fried Rice

This salmon fried rice is a great way to use leftover salmon. Using frozen vegetables keeps prep work to a minimum. Sriracha gives this quick stir-fry a nice touch of heat.

  • 4 small scallions

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil or vegetable oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen stir-fry vegetables

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice

  • 2 cups roughly chopped cooked salmon

  • 3 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha, plus more for garnish

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish


  1. Thinly slice scallions, reserving white and light green parts separately from dark green parts.

  2. Heat oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and the light green and white scallion slices; cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add frozen vegetables; cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and starting to brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in rice; cook, stirring often, until the rice is lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add salmon, soy sauce and Sriracha; cook, stirring constantly, until the rice is well coated and the salmon is hot, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

  3. Stir cilantro into the fried rice and toss well. Divide among 4 plates. Garnish with the reserved dark green scallion slices and with additional Sriracha and cilantro, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
