The Ingredients

Scroll to the bottom of this post for the quantity of each ingredient used in our keto salmon stir fry recipe.

This is one of the healthiest ways to cook salmon. Stir fries are fast and easy. Cooking this way results in crisp vegetables and perfectly cooked salmon without using lots of fat and retaining all the nutrients.

Here is the rundown for our salmon stir fry ingredients.

Fresh Salmon – I use skinless Huon Salmon fillets. Fresh or frozen fillets are both fine for the stir fry. Ocean trout, or any firm fish fillets can be used in place of the salmon.

Vegetables – the recipe uses fresh asparagus, bok choy and capsicum/red bell peppers. Broccoli, sugar snap peas, green beans, or broccolini are some great substitutes.

Teriyaki sauce ingredients for a salmon stir fry on green tiles.

I love this simple stir fry sauce. It is incredibly tasty and still is keto friendly and low in carbs, just the way I like it. A delicious gluten free homemade Teriyaki sauce that is quick and easy to make.

Vegemite – Swap gluten free soy sauce or coconut aminos for Vegemite or leave it out completely. 

Sweetener – I use Sukrin Gold as my brown sweetener. It adds a nice subtle sweetness to the salmon stir fry sauce.

Ginger – use fresh ginger or fresh ginger paste.

Rice Wine Vinegar – I use this for added acidity without a strong flavour.

How to Make an Easy Salmon Stir Fry

Step 1. Place sauce ingredients into a large bowl and whisk until combined. Set aside.

Step 2. Add 2 teaspoons of oil to a wok over high heat. Add half the salmon cubes and stir fry 1-2 minutes until seared. Remove from oil and transfer to a plate. Add leftover oil and repeat with remaining salmon. Set aside.

Step 3. Add sauce to wok over high heat and bring to a boil. Add capsicum and asparagus and stir fry 1-2 minutes. Return salmon to wok and add bok choy turn to coat in the sauce. Stir fry until the bok choy is “just” tender and the sauce has thickened. Serve with sliced green onions, red pepper flakes (or fresh chili), a smattering of sesame seeds and lime wedges to squeeze over.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to serve with salmon stir fry?

You can add noodles to the stir fry or make a salmon stir fry rice. Cauliflower rice or regular rice would work well. Add any of your favourite herbs and chili or chili flakes are always fab.

Can you reheat salmon stir fry?

Yes, you can. If you are planning on not serving the stir fry immediately leave the salmon slightly under how you would usually like it. That way it will be easier to not overcook. Reheat in a skillet over medium heat and remove once warmed through.

Notes

INGREDIENTS
I have used skinless salmon fillet from Huon Aqua. These are available in both major supermarkets in Australia. Any fresh or frozen salmon fillets can be used. Substitute ocean trout another firm fish fillet, prawns/shrimp, or chicken. 
Any vegetables can be used in a stir fry. I love the combination of red bell peppers and baby bok choy, but broccoli, sugar snap peas, green beans, or broccolini are some great substitutes.
The sauce is a simple homemade Teriyaki sauce. Swap gluten free soy sauce or coconut aminos for Vegemite or leave it out completely. 
I use Sukrin Gold as my brown sweetener. It adds a nice subtle sweetness to the salmon stir fry sauce. Garlic, ginger and sesame oil add so much flavour to this healthy salmon stir fry.
STORAGE
Teriyaki Salmon stir fry is best eaten straight after cooking. It can also be enjoyed cold or gently reheated for an easy meal any time of the week. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Freeze and defrost in the fridge if needed.

I have including an option for steaming salmon in the Thermomix. It is simple and delicious cooked this way too.
