Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 cups water
  • 3 cups long grain white rice, uncooked
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil, divided
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, chopped
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Pour the water into a saucepan, add the rice, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until rice is tender and water is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Set aside.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, place 2 tablespoons of cooking oil into a large skillet and heat over medium heat. Stir in the eggs and cook until scrambled to desired consistency. Remove eggs from the pan, and set aside.
  3. 3 Using the same skillet, add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, and heat over medium heat. Stir in the onion and green onion; cook until the onion is transparent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the salmon, rice, peas, and scrambled eggs, and toss until evenly blended. Cook and stir rice mixture until heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  1. My husband made this recipe exactly as it's written and we're basing our review on that. This is bland and disappointing. In the first place the rice is way out of proportion with all other ingredients. In the second place there's absolutely no flavor. In the third place it's super SUPER dry. I like my - Read more ...
  2. To reduce carbs and add more veg/protein I use 1c dry rice 1 cup peas and 2 salmon burgers from Costco then the rest of the recipe as is written. Doesn't last we make it often!
  3. This is perfect!!! Added soy sauce and some red pepper flakes. Will be a staple in our Alaskan home Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
  4. My family liked this. I added some smooth Alaskan peas to it as well as a little curry crushed red pepper and balsamic vinegar. It was amazing. I think it would be great with chicken or pork as well.
  5. Yummy!! I didn't have salmon and was to lazy to go to the store so I just used chicken. It was tasty and my husband gobbled it up even though it was "healthy" and "looked like that gross Chinese food" He was impressed and hes picky! Thank you! I can't wait to try it with - Read more ...
  6. This was perfect. I halved the recipe and added mushrooms and a dash of soy sauce and then enjoyed dinner. Thanks:)
  7. This was GREAT and a really good way to get rid of extra smoked salmon. I will definitely be making this again with shrimp or chicken. I varied a lot from the recipe but the heart of it was still there. I used a fried rice mix (which had a seasoning packet)so there was only - Read more ...
  8. My husband loves smoked salmon and this dish is a winner. We use about 3 times the salmon and 2 times the peas so the dish isn't mostly rice like the recipe calls for.
  9. This was good. The only thing that I would suggest is to use a little more smoked salmon. I didn't use any salt since I thought that the salmon was salty enough.
