  • 6 cups water

  • 3 cups long grain white rice, uncooked

  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil, divided

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • ½ onion, finely chopped

  • 1 green onion, chopped

  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, chopped

  • ½ cup frozen peas

  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. Pour water into a saucepan; add rice and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until rice is tender and water is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, place 2 tablespoons of cooking oil into a large skillet and heat over medium heat. Stir in eggs and cook until scrambled to desired consistency. Remove eggs from the pan; set aside.

  3. Using the same skillet, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil and heat over medium heat. Stir in onion and green onion; cook until onion is transparent, about 5 minutes. Stir in salmon, rice, peas, and scrambled eggs; toss until evenly blended. Cook and stir rice mixture until heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
