In this delicious, gourmet dish, you’ll make an incredible glaze for tender, flaky salmon. Orange and ginger are a powerfully flavorful combination, equal parts sweet and savory: the fresh, tart notes of citrus perfectly complement the peppery aromatic properties of ginger. We’re also adding light richness to the glaze with sweet soy sauce (a thicker, sweeter version of the original).

Orange-Ginger Salmon with Shiitake Mushroom & Yu Choy Fried Rice ingredients
  • 4 Salmon Fillets
  • 1 Farm Egg
  • 2 Cups Jasmine Rice
  • 4 Ounces Shiitake Mushrooms
  • 3 Cloves Garlic

In a medium pot, heat the rice, a big pinch of salt and 4 cups of water to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover the pot and reduce the heat to low. Cook 11 to 13 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from heat. Fluff the finished rice with a fork.

Cut off and discard the root ends of the yu choy; thinly slice the stems and leaves. Halve the orange; squeeze the juice into a bowl, straining out the seeds.
