Salmon Fried Rice

This is another of my Quick & Easy recipes.  Perfect after a hectic day, with little time to spend in the kitchen, or really, for any time!

If you’re a pescatarian, (not a vegetarian), then I’m sure that you’re going to like this dish.

When I have leftover rice, I like to make fried rice, and often they are vegetarian. Today, however, I felt like some salmon. This dish can also be made with tinned tuna. You can play around with the ingredients. Add some spice; garlic; flavoured oils; or even other vegetables. It’s all up to you!

If you need any convincing to eat more salmon, then read this:

Salmon has many health benefits, including:

  1. Omega 3 fatty acids  – since our bodies cannot make them, we need to either eat foods rich in these fatty acids, or take supplements

  2. Protein – leaner than chicken and other meats, and lower in cholesterol

  3. According to research, wild salmon is the best. Most of us just eat farmed salmon, since it is more readily available

  4. It helps to reduce depression; stabilize blood pressure; is anti-inflammatory; and contains selenium, which we need for fighting disease
