Quick & Easy Salmon Stir-Fry - Easy "One-Pot" Low Carb

This evening my youngest son came for dinner. One of his favorite things to eat is salmon, so I decided to make something a little different using it. I wanted to use the non-stick ceramic coated wok he got me for Christmas so he could see it in action...LOL. I've never made salmon in a wok before, but it surely won't be the last time because it turned out fabulous cooked in it! I served the salmon fillets on a bed of colorful stir-fried veggies, also cooked in the wok. I was able to cook the entire meal in one pot. 

I first cooked the salmon by heating a little coconut oil in the wok over medium high heat and then placed the salmon fillets in the wok, covered them and cooked for about 5 minutes. I flipped then over, added a couple tablespoons of sliced green onions, a few splashes of organic Tamari sauce and covered and cooked the other side for another 5 minutes or so, until done. I slid the fillets out into a shallow bowl and covered them to keep warm. 

I added a touch more coconut oil to the wok and then tossed in about 1 cup of thinly sliced red cabbage, 1/2 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper, 1 small thinly julienned carrot and stir-fried them until crisp tender. While the veggies were cooking, I steamed some small fresh broccoli florets for a couple minutes in the microwave just until they were bright green and added them to the wok with the other veggies. I added a few more splashes of Tamari sauce, sprinkled in a pinch or two of sesame seeds and some thinly sliced green onion tops and stir-fried the for another minute or two. I placed a bed of the colorful stir-fried veggie medley on the plates and topped it with the salmon fillets. It was amazingly good and so fresh and flavorful. I snapped a quick photo for you to see below. Enjoy!

Spike spent his day snuggled in a pile of blankets most of this dreary cold and rainy day

Hi CyberSis,

Ha! Technically those aren't his blankets (their ours). We've given him his own blankets but he decided he likes ours better! He actually chooses his favorites. :-)
