FAQ’s

What is a stir fry?

Did you know this is my 7th stir fry recipe? From shrimp, to chicken, to steak I just love making a good stir fry dinner!

Traditional stir fry is a Chinese method of quickly cooking ingredients in a small amount of oil in a wok or pan. Much like the traditional style, this recipe uses little oil to cook the vegetables and salmon. A small change from the traditional stir fry method is that the salmon sits and cooks instead of being stirred. This prevents the salmon from flaking and keeps it in those nice bite-sized chunks!

What can I serve with this Salmon Stir Fry?

There are many different sides this Teriyaki Salmon Stir Fry goes well with. For starters, you can serve it with fresh white or brown rice. It also pairs well with quinoa or cauliflower rice. Stir fry noodles such as chow mein noodles, udon noodles, or even spaghetti noodles in a pinch also make a great side.

Is this Stir Fry healthy?

When people see the word fry, they assume the food is cooked in large amount of oil and might not be that healthy for them, like french fries. But, the method of stir frying uses small amounts of oil making it much healthier than traditional frying methods.

The ingredients of this recipe are also packed with nutrients and many health benefits. Salmon is high in Omega-3 fatty acids as well as many antioxidants. This stir fry contains many vegetables full in fiber and vitamins!

    I made this using a frozen mixed blend of Asian vegetables, & it was delicious. My 8 year old granddaughter gave me a thumbs up, because she really liked it. I found that I needed more cornstarch & thought that your 2 tsps. might have meant 2 tablespoons rather than 2 teaspoons, so I added the larger amount so the marinade would coat the salmon & vegetables better. Because my granddaughter doesn’t like very spicy, I reduced the black & cayenne peppers by 50%. When she’s not eating it, I’ll try more peppers.
    Thanks for your great recipe. It’s a keeper.
