Spicy Salmon and Mango Fried Rice Bowl

Being from Florida, I am a super seafood lover and I am proud to say my daughter is following in my footsteps! Her favorites are shrimp, crab, tuna, and salmon. Unfortunately, where we live in Louisiana, seafood isn't as readily available as back home, but I still get plenty of fresh Gulf shrimp and beautiful Salmon filets. So this was one of those recipes that I just threw together with what was available in my fridge {and what I knew my daughter would eat}. We eat fried rice and stir-fries often but this was my first time adding mango {another Ava favorite} and salmon to the rice. I will add I used a lot of butter in this recipe but you can easily omit some and substitute olive oil or sesame oil in the rice. I just think- sometime butter is better (especially in fried rice)! I topped it with my absolute favorite condiment: Annie Chun's GoChoJang Sauce (spicy Korean BBQ). Not only is this colorful dish beautiful to look it, my Spicy Salmon and Mango Fried Rice Bowl will make your taste buds sing with happiness {oh yes it's that good!}.
Talk about bang for your buck! The salmon I purchase is usually a huge filet for around $15-$20.
I rinse it, pat dry, and cut it into 6-8 portioned filets and separate into labeled freezer bags with 2 per bag all ready for meals. 
Here is it...the BEST SAUCE EVER! I add it to eggs, burritos, rice, soup, you name it!
I have purchased it at Whole Foods, HEB and Publix.

Ingredients:

Makes 4 servings

  • 2 salmon filets (around 4-6 oz each), rinsed and skin removed
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 4 oz baby bella mushrooms (approx 4-5 mushrooms), sliced
  • 1/4 cup green onions, diced
  • 3 cups Jasmine rice, cooked
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 tbsp Teriyaki sauce/marinade, I like Mr Yoshiba's 
  • Annie Chun's GoChuJang Sauce, for drizzle on top


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Place salmon filets in a baking dish. Coat in teriyaki marinade and top with a tbsp of butter each.
  3. Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes, until cooked through and flaky.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large skillet or wok, add a tablespoon of butter to a skillet and add mushrooms. Saute until golden.
  5. Push mushrooms to the side and add another tablespoon of butter.
  6. Add green onions, rice, and peas. Drizzle with a tablespoon of soy sauce and mix together. 
  7. After cooking for a minute, push rice to the side and add the two beaten eggs. Stir with a fork until eggs scramble and then mix into rice. 
  8. Mix in mangoes and add another tablespoon of soy sauce. 
  9. Take your fish out of the oven and break apart with a fork and add salmon to the top of the rice.
  10. Drizzle with GoChuJang sauce (or another spicy sauce of your choice) and serve.

My sous chef saves the day again!
 My hubby is the best at cutting mangoes {even though I know he sneaks a few bites}! 
Dice and slice up all the toppings.
Cook a pot of rice, I prefer Jasmine rice for this recipe. 
Add a tablespoon of butter to a skillet and add mushrooms. Saute until cooked down and golden.
Push mushrooms to the side and add another tablespoon of butter.
Add green onions, rice, and peas. Drizzle with a tablespoon of soy sauce and mix together. 
After cooking for a minute, push rice to the side and add the two beaten eggs. 
Stir with a fork until eggs scramble and then mix into rice. 
Mix in mangos and add another tablespoon of soy sauce. 
Take your fish out of the oven and break apart with a fork.
Now add salmon to the top of the rice.
Drizzle with GoChuJang sauce (or another spicy sauce of your choice). 
Scoop onto a plate and serve warm. {Try not to lick the plate!}
They say you eat with your eyes first and this colorful dish is sure to make you want to dig right in!

  1. This was delicious! Even my non veggie eating bf went back for seconds!!! I added a chopped, cooked chicken breast to make it a main dish. This will be in our regular menu rotation.
