In this adaptation of a Chinese takeout classic, fresh orange juice and a soy-based sauce create a sweet and savory glaze for salmon. We’re serving the fillets on a bed of fried rice, brimming with delicious cool-weather vegetables. (Cooking the egg separately from the vegetables before mixing it all together ensures perfect texture!)
