Salmon Stir Fry

Healthy Salmon Stir Fry Recipe with vegetables the whole family will love on your dinner table in 20 minutes.

I have kept this salmon stir fry recipe in my back pocket to update with new photos after we moved to the island. Naturally I knew we would have wide access to fresh wild salmon right in our own backyard. Our neighbours consist primarily of retired and with life experience adults who have time to fish, bake and chit chat. I love it! No one is in a rush except us which I’m sure is a breath of fresh air for them as well.:) Probably “it’s fun” to watch my life race on the sidelines.

Anyways, our neighbour Mike gifted us with beautiful spring (king) salmon fillets, its head and roe. I made a soup from a head (“Uha”), caviar from the fish eggs and half of the fillet went into this stir fry that is high in protein, rich with heart healthy fats and low in carbs. King salmon is not vibrant red colour as the sockeye but same juicy and tender. Green beans are a perfect accompaniment to salmon. You could also use frozen green beans or vegetable medley, yellow wax beans or broccoli. As for the sauce I used soy sauce, garlic and ginger. That’s it and it was to die for!

If you need more ideas how to cook fresh salmon, try Thai salmon, honey garlic salmon or baked salmon recipe.
