Salmon and rice noodles fry

Salmon and rice noodles fry

From the many salmon dishes that I had posted, it’s obvious that many people like salmon, whether for it’s health benefits or for it’s flavour and delicacy. Salmon is very versatile and can be cooked in many ways. My family loves salmon and I cook it very often. But there are times when I cook too much and there are leftovers. I am not very good in using leftovers and sometimes they just ended up in the bin. This rice noodle fry with leftover salmon actually turned out delicious. I liked it but my husband thinks it would be more delicious with chicken. I think it’s because he has never heard or eaten fried noodles with salmon!

This recipe is very simple and easy. You can use any leftover fish or other meat. There is no fixed ingredients. Use the amount of individual ingredients you want. Put them together and adjust the seasoning according to your taste.

rice noodles (fresh or dry)
cooked salmon (flaked)
green leafy vegetables (washed and cut)
red chilies (chopped)
fried garlic oil
oyster sauce
dark soya sauce
pepper powder

Flaked salmon

Leftover flaked salmon

The leftover salmon that I used here was very tasty. It was well seasoned and pan fried and so it’s delicious when fried with the rice noodles. Just break it up in fairly big pieces.

Fry the rice noodles

Fry the rice noodles

Fresh rice noodles usually come in big chunks. Separate them into individual strands before using. If using the dry type, boil it in water until just to the texture that you like. It will take a few minutes. Do not over boil or the noodles will be too soft when fried. Drain it, add some fried garlic oil so that the strands do not stick together. It is ready for use.

Heat up some fried garlic oil in the frying pan or wok. Do not add too much as there’s already garlic oil added to the rice noodles or you can just fry the noodles without adding more oil. Add some oyster sauce and dark soya sauce and fry until fragrant. Use high heat if possible. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste. Dish it up onto a plate.

Stir fry the vegetables and salmon separately. Add to the fried rice noodles and mix gently so that the salmon pieces are not broken into tiny pieces. Sprinkle some pepper powder if you like. Dish up and serve hot.

I usually used leftover salmon for sandwiches.

sushma mallya  on May 12th, 2010

Stir fry looks yum with all the sauce and other ingredients…colourful and delicious one…

tigerfish  on May 12th, 2010

Reminds me of Kedgeree where usually we use leftover fish and cooked rice - so can I say this is a new creative delicious spin on Kedgeree ? :D

Nasi Lemak Lover  on May 12th, 2010

When West (Salmon) meet East (rice noodles), look so yummy, a perfect combination!

DG  on May 12th, 2010

Not even dinner yet, but you make me really hungry now. And this is real expensive Fried Guo Tiaw, ppl use meat/chicken, but you use salmon fish hehehehe…

Mary  on May 12th, 2010

@Elin - Looks like your family loves salmon very much. I’m just bad in estimating food sometimes :( Lots more to learn…hehe

@Little Inbox - Thanks very much. I think blogging has made me more creative :D

@somewhere in singapore - Haha…..trying to imagine that :D

@anncoo - Haiyah, why didn’t I think of that?? I think it’s because we don’t eat a lot of bread…that’s why! Will have to do that next time. Ann, you always give me very good suggestions. Appreciate very much! :D

@sushma mallya - Thanks very much, Sushma! :D

@tigerfish - New word I learn…kedgeree! I hope I pronounce correctly…haha :D Will have to check that out.

@Nasi Lemak Lover - Aha…you described it well. It’s truly West meets East :D Need to learn more fusion like this.

@DG - Haha….I suddenly forgot we stay in different parts of the world :D I know, salmon is very expensive in your part of the world but relatively cheaper here.

@the lacquer spoon - I’m expecting :D

@Priya - Thanks very much, Priya! :D Looks like it’s time for you to cook salmon again.

@Love2cook - Thanks very much! :D

@SathyaSridhar - Lovely to know we share the same favourite! :D

@claudia lamascolo - Yes, I love to add some oyster sauce sometimes for that extra flavour. It’s very common in Chinese cooking. This dish has no onions so you can try :D

Belinda @zomppa  on May 12th, 2010

Man, I LOVE rice noodles and love that you put salmon in it!

penny aka jeroxie  on May 12th, 2010

Inspired by your salmon dishes, I had it twice this week. :)

kristy  on May 12th, 2010

Wow, looks like stir fried beef with ‘hor fun’! I think salmon should taste as good as well, don’t they! Frankly, I don’t dare to touch on them when shopping at the supermarket. So expensive over here! But still Ok to eat once awhile! hehe…. Sounds so stingy huh! hahaha…. Anyway, have a great day!
Cheers, Kristy

I’m drooling…it looks sssoooooooooooooooooooooooo tempting dear..

Drick  on May 12th, 2010

I think the salmon is just great in this dish and so would the chicken - two different tastes - good that you use leftovers, such a waste, I hate to throw out good food….

Mary  on May 12th, 2010

I’ve never prepared salmon with the noodles. I use leftover salmon in salad or to make salmon cakes. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings…Mary

tasteofbeirut  on May 12th, 2010

I think it is high time I start using rice noodles; they are so much lighter than egg and wheat flour noodles and as you have been showing me all along so versatile!

Erica  on May 12th, 2010

I love salmon!!! Great recipe to use this delicious fish!

Kamalika  on May 12th, 2010

Looks so tempting..I never had salmon with rice noodles..i bet it must be very tempting…

That looks good. I love the thick rice noodles. I tried to make it once but it didn’t come out as I thought.

peteformation  on May 12th, 2010

Wah, Salmon Char Kueh Teow……maybe next time become popular in Penang! LOL!

Mary  on May 12th, 2010

@Belinda @zomppa - I like rice noodles too. I think it’s more friednly to the stomach :D

@penny aka jeroxie - Wow….that’s really nice. I eat at least 2x a week too :D

@kristy - I think it’s delicious but my hubby prefers it with meat. I think next time I’ll dish up some for him first before adding the salmon, so he has to eat a vegerian dish :P Yes, I know it’s very expensive in Malaysian. If I’m back home, I’ll be just like you. But there are lots of other very delicous cheaper fresh fish which I really miss. I can’t wait to go back to eat all of them!

@Simply Life - No, dry noodles are very easy to find. They are available in all Asian shops. Asians eat a lot of rice noodles. They come in different sizes. They are also called rice sticks. I hope you can find them. Have fun cooking :D

@divya - Haha….time to take out your work and start cooking :D

@Drick - I know, I’m learning very hard to use leftovers. I wish I can cook the exact amount! Well….keep learning keep smiling :D

@Mary - Thanks very much for sharing how to use leftovers! :D Really appreciate that. Never thought of it. I would try it in salad next time. Sounds very delicious….mmmm

@tasteofbeirut - I love rice noodles. My stomache doesn’t take in wheat noodles as well as rice noodles. But I love wheat noodles too…just have to eat less :P Have fun cooking!

@Erica - Yeah…lovely to know you love salmon too! :D

@Kamalika - This is delicious…at least for me….at least I had good use of leftover salmon :D

@Joy - I wonder why it didn’t turn out well. Please don’t give up. Try again. You’ll get it right soon. You do need a little more oil and high heat if possible. The rest is just adjust the seasoning according to your taste. Have fun cooking :D

@peteformation - Haha…love the new name….Salmon Char Kway Teow!!! Pete, you can start it…..will be rich pretty soon and you will thank me for the idea..LOL :D

Mary, your food is the kind of food I crave on a Friday night while watching movies and having drinks! It just looks so satisfying.
I love the idea of these egg noodles with salmon. But I need to check out that seriously delicious looking soup below.

lequan@luvtoeat  on May 12th, 2010

I love cooking with salmon or using it for hot pot but once it’s over night I won’t eat it again as I find it too fishy. But good thing my hubby will eat it. Maybe I’m just cooking it wrong. I’ll have to give your recipe a try next time we have salmon leftovers. Thank you for sharing Mary.

Yummy Team  on May 12th, 2010

Love your recipes, Mary…This dish looks extremely tasty, lovely clicks too..

Kristi@Ja Cie Kocham  on May 12th, 2010

Great use of salmon! I always serve it on its own and really should start putting in noodles. Thanks for the idea!

Jeannie  on May 12th, 2010

Oh wow! Fried kuey tiao with salmons! Not the usual combination but pretty unique. Great idea!

Velva  on May 12th, 2010

You are right, salmon is very versatile and can be served up so many ways. You did a really great job with preparing the salmon rice noodle stir-fry. Very nice.

Roti n Rice  on May 12th, 2010

Good way of using the leftover salmon. Looks really delicious. Love fried rice noodles. We just had some salmon but no left overs :)

Christine @ Fresh Local and Best  on May 12th, 2010

I love chow fun nooodles. The combination looks fantastic!

Joanne  on May 12th, 2010

Salmon is my favorite dish and of course, I have a serious adoration for rice noodles! Basically, I adore this dish.

sweetlife  on May 12th, 2010

salmon and noodles..the best combo..great dish…


Mary  on May 12th, 2010

@Namitha - Thanks very much, Namitha! :D

@Sook - Thanks very much, Sook! :D

@pigpigscorner - Thanks very much! :D I use one that was written ‘rice sticks’ on the packet, also with the words ‘Banh Pho’. There’s also a beautiful red rose on it and it’s a product of Thailand. So far mine never break into pieces. Do try again.

@Stella - Thanks very much, Stella! I hope you can find the Prawn soup paste. Have fun cooking :D

@lequan@luvtoeat - I have to agree with you that it’s slightly fishy. But if the salmon is seasoned well, it’s not so bad. Frying it again helps too. It’s a good thing that you hubby loves it :D

@Yummy Team - Thanks very much! :D

@Kristi@Ja Cie Kocham - You are most welcome! Have fun cooking :D

@Jeannie - Haha…agree with you it’s unusual combination but a good try :D

@Velva - Thanks very much, Velva! I’m glad that it worked :D

@Roti n Rice - Thanks very much, Biren! Looks like you can estimate the right amount to cook :D

@Christine @ Fresh Local and Best - Thanks very much, Christine! :D

@Joanne - That’s exciting….we share the same favourite! :D

@sweetlife - Thanks very much! :D

Catherine  on May 13th, 2010

Oh Mary how nice does this look?! I’ve only tried salmon once, but I would loooove to try it in this dish, the rice noodles are making me hungry!

Cheah  on May 13th, 2010

What a creative way to use up leftover salmon. It’s something different and healthy too.

Mimi  on May 13th, 2010

Yum! Why wait for leftover salmon.

rosebelle  on May 13th, 2010

I have never thought of this combo before. I love salmon…raw and cooked. Thanks for the dish idea and recipe.

Mary  on May 13th, 2010

@Catherine - Maybe next time if you eat salmon, save some for this dish :D

@Cheah - Thanks very much, Cheah! :D

@Mimi - Haha…just so used to using meat when frying rice noodles :D I think desperation leads to creativity…haha :D

@rosebelle - It was an unprecedented attempt but glad it turned out well :D

Faith  on May 13th, 2010

Hehe, this looks absolutely delicious but there is no way there would be enough leftover salmon in my kitchen to make a dish with it. Any leftovers end up in my stomach, I just cannot help myself. If I had theoretical leftover salmon I would perhaps put it into an omelette :)

Mary  on May 21st, 2010

@dave - Thanks very much for visiting and lovely comment, Dave! Try again on your fish stir fry. A non stick pan or thick based pan will work well. Have fun cooking :D
