Alaskan Salmon Fried Rice

Alaskan salmon fried rice recipe

The meat for fried rice is usually thought of as pork, chicken, or beef. Some restaurants do offer a shrimp fried rice, too, but have you ever seen salmon fried rice? The high degree of natural healthy oils in salmon blend well with a high-quality rice, the mixed vegetables, and fried egg, making a dish suitable as a side and filling enough to be used as a main course itself. Once taste and we're sure you'll agree that fried rice and salmon go well together!

While the recipe on this page isn't the only salmon and rice recipe you can find, we believe it's one of the most creative and certainly the tastiest. Combining two favorites, salmon with fried rice just seems natural. It's certainly helpful that this recipe is so simple, and the directions are easy to follow.
