Making the salmon fried rice recipe

  1. First, mix together the sauce for the fried rice the set to the side. Next, prep all the ingredients together. For the green onions, cut up the white parts of the onions. In a standard bunch from the store this will be just enough for one serving.

  6. Next, toss in the cooked salmon and the egg. Now is the time you use the spoon to chop up the salmon and the egg into the rice. Once that is done pour in the sauce you made earlier.
  7. Quickly mix everything together until everything is coated and colored perfectly then turn off the heat.
  8. Lastly, taste for salt and pepper once a little cooled. You can also add more soy sauce in the place of the extra salt.
