Salmon XO Fried Rice

  • Sharebar

I don’t know about you, but I love XO sauce! Ever since I had my first taste of XO sauce at a relative’s place, I was always on the search for XO sauce to go with everything. Fortunately, XO Sauce is easily available here in Sydney, albeit at a premium. Some grocery stores even keep them in a cupboard next to the cashier for fear of them getting stolen! Anyway, a couple of weeks back, I had the sudden craving for XO fried rice, but I was out of shrimps. So I improvised, and fried it with the slab of salmon that I had in the fridge, hence Salmon XO Fried Rice was born. :)

The obvious ingredient here would be the XO sauce, while the salmon is optional since you can replace it with other types of fish or seafood.

  • 200g of salmon fillet slices
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 an onion
  • 1/3 slab of fish cake sliced
  • 2 tbsp of cooking oil

Give it a good stir

Steps:

1. Season the salmon slices with some salt and pepper.

2. On a frying pan, add in 1 tbsp of oil and place the salmon fillets on the pan when the oil is hot.

3. Give it a good fry to about 80% doneness, and place the salmon aside.

4. Pour another 1 tbsp of oil into a new pan and throw in the chopped garlic and onion.

5. Stir fry for a minute or so until it’s fragrant, then place the sliced fish cake on the pan.

6. The fish cake is already cooked so you only need to heat it for about 30 seconds or so, then pour in the white rice.

7. Add in the mixture of oyster sauce, dark soya sauce, light soya sauce and sesame oil and give it a good stir.

8. Add in the XO sauce and salmon fillets and fry for a couple of minutes.

9. Give it a taste and add more XO sauce and a dash of salt if required. I know I was very liberal with my XO sauce! :)

10. Plate rice and garnish with tomato slices.

Delicious Salmon XO Fried rice with extra XO sauce :)

I love how the XO sauce brought the normal plain fried rice to a different level. The flavours of dried shrimps, scallops and some other seafood in the XO sauce made the rice very tasty! I think I would have been satisfied with just fried rice and XO sauce itself, even without salmon. :)
