Salmon and Snow Pea Stir Fry

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

You wouldn't expect to find salmon in a stir-fry. But when you're tired of the same old chicken or shrimp, try this high-protein, heart-healthy entree from Oxygen Magazine. The salmon really soaks up a nice orange flavor; pineapple or another juice might be tasty too!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut salmon into 1 1/2 inch cubes and place in a resealable plastic bag.
  2. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, juice, garlic and sesame oil; pour half the marinade into the plastic bag with salmon.
  3. Marinate the fish for 30 minutes in the fridge.
  4. Coat a nonstick frying pan or wok with nonstick spray.
  5. Remove salmon from bag; discard leftover marinade.
  6. Stir-fry salmon over medium-high heat, about five minutes. Turn salmon over gently so that all sides cook evenly. Be very careful with the salmon pieces so they stay intact - this was the hardest part for me; I didn't realize I'm quite the aggressive mad-woman stir-fryer!
  7. Remove salmon from wok and add sliced onion. Stir-fry onion until brown, about five minutes. Add snow peas and stir-fry until they turn bright green, about three minutes.
  8. Return salmon to pan and pour reserved marinade over fish and vegetables. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
  9. Serve with 1/2 cup of brown rice for each plate, if desired.

Excellent recipe!! Made it as is the first time. I have made it several times since then and have tried all kinds of vegetables, and different types of meats. You can't mess this one up! Thank you!

I have never had fish in a stir fry dish before so I was very interested to try this. It turned out wonderfully and I appreciate its healthiness. I doubled the recipe for 4 of us and added carrots, but left the amount of snow peas at 6 ounces. I was glad to have the warning about being gentle with the salmon, because I tend to be more aggressive with the stirring. Thanks for sharing!

Great marinade! This was all but inhaled at dinner tonight. Made with steamed spinach rice (which was topped with cheese for the kid's). I sprinkled a bit of ground ginger in the marinade too, just to round out the Asian flavors. We will be making this again. LOVE dinners done in under 20 minutes :) Thanks for sharing.
