Recipe: Simple Stir-Fry with Salmon Chunks

It’s been awhile since I posted a new recipe on the blog but tonight I made something so freaking delish that it would be a crime not to share it with the world… or at least the little world that I’ve created within the realm of I Adore What I Love.

Simple Stir-Fry with Salmon Chunks - via www.iadorewhatilove.comI call it “Stir-Fry with Salmon Chunks” but I suppose Salmon Stir-Fry sounds better?  Either way, let’s be honest here… I didn’t use the traditional wok to make this dish.  Ooops!  You can though, and totally should if you have one avail and decide to give this recipe a go yourself.  I bet it will taste even better than mine, although I don’t know how that’s possible.

Please don’t tell anyone I did that, okay?  THANKS!  (Although it is my best kept secret… shhhhh)

Simple Stir-Fry with Salmon Chunks - via www.iadorewhatilove.comAbout those salmon chunks!  I made salmon yesterday (a filet for myself and one for my hubby) and was looking for a new recipe because I always do the same thing of simply topping it off with Montreal Steak Seasoning.  I happened to be talking to my mother-in-law on my way home from work and she told me about an easy salmon recipe that someone had previously taught her.  Basically, she does the same as me BUT on top of the Montreal Steak Seasoning, she adds a sprinkle of brown sugar. OMG it was amazing!  I don’t know what it is but that tiny drizzle of brown sugar on top makes it into a completely different meal… a better meal… a less boring meal… one FULL of flavor and still so incredibly easy.  I’ve decided that I will never make salmon any other way for now on!  Actually, I probably will because I like to try new things but this specific salmon recipe will always be in the rotation in my house… always.

But I wanted to change things up and since I had lots of veggies and more salmon in my fridge, I thought I would make a vegetable stir-fry and cut the salmon into medium sized chunks to add to the end dish. YES, I made the salmon the same way that I did yesterday.  I just couldn’t help myself :)
