You wouldn't expect to find salmon in a stir-fry. But when you're tired of the same old chicken or shrimp, try this high-protein, heart-healthy entree from Oxygen Magazine. The salmon really soaks up a nice orange flavor; pineapple or another juice might be tasty too!
- 6 ounces skinless salmon fillet (wild is healthier than farm-raised)
- 1⁄4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1⁄4 cup orange juice
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- nonstick cooking spray or peanut oil
- 1 small onion, halved and sliced
- 6 ounces snow peas
- Cut salmon into 1 1/2 inch cubes and place in a resealable plastic bag.
- In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, juice, garlic and sesame oil; pour half the marinade into the plastic bag with salmon.
- Marinate the fish for 30 minutes in the fridge.
- Coat a nonstick frying pan or wok with nonstick spray.
- Remove salmon from bag; discard leftover marinade.
- Stir-fry salmon over medium-high heat, about five minutes. Turn salmon over gently so that all sides cook evenly. Be very careful with the salmon pieces so they stay intact - this was the hardest part for me; I didn't realize I'm quite the aggressive mad-woman stir-fryer!
- Remove salmon from wok and add sliced onion. Stir-fry onion until brown, about five minutes. Add snow peas and stir-fry until they turn bright green, about three minutes.
- Return salmon to pan and pour reserved marinade over fish and vegetables. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
- Serve with 1/2 cup of brown rice for each plate, if desired.
Excellent recipe!! Made it as is the first time. I have made it several times since then and have tried all kinds of vegetables, and different types of meats. You can't mess this one up! Thank you!
I just made the salmon stir fry, adding peppers, snap peas, straw mushrooms, and spinach since I did not want rice since I'm trying to diet. All I can say is wow, awesome..while watching TV. It was great and so easy to prepare!
It was good , my husband like it
