  • 1 cup low GI rice cooked
  • 1 salmon fillet 125g
  • 30 g pine nuts
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 spring onions sliced
  • 1 garlic minced
  • ¼ brown onion diced
  • 1 tsp fried shallots
  • ¼ cup frozen mixed vegetables
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • ground black pepper pinch


  • Heat 2 tsp of olive oil in a medium non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot and shimmering, place salmon into the pan and cook for about 4 minutes on each side.
  • Transfer salmon onto a plate then use a fork to gently break salmon into small flakes.
  • Toast pine nuts in the skillet over low-medium heat then set aside. Heat remaining olive oil in the skillet then sauté garlic and onion until slightly translucent.
  • Add cooked rice, salmon, pepper, soy sauce and teriyaki sauce to the skillet. Stir fry for a couple of minutes.
  • Create well in the middle of the rice. Crack an egg in the well and wait for 30 seconds then stir fry. Once the egg is cooked, stir it in with the rice. Add in frozen mixed vegetables, pine nuts and spring onion. Stir well.
  • Lastly, drizzle sesame oil over the rice and give it one last stir. Serve hot.


Cooked brown rice is also a great option for texture and a higher fibre content.
