This easy low FODMAP salmon fried rice is one of my favourite lunch time dishes! It is easy to make and the grated carrot gives the dish a slightly sweet flavour.
Tinned salmon (with bones) is an excellent source of calcium, especially for those of us who do not tolerate dairy products.
If you are feeling lazy you can use precooked rice from the supermarket, which will almost halve the amount of time it takes to make this low FODMAP recipe.
Recipe update: Please note that this recipe was updated on the 5th of March 2022 after Monash University changed the serving size recommendation for red pepper/capsicum.
Garlic infused oil is normally found in the oil section of your local supermarket or you can buy it online. It should be clear with no floating bits of garlic.
You can also make garlic infused oil at home by frying garlic cloves in cooking oil until they are golden and fragrant, then remove and discard the garlic before you continue cooking your meal. This is a low FODMAP way to capture the garlic flavour as the fructans can't leach into the oil.
Check the crushed ginger does not contain garlic. Crushed ginger is grated ginger that has been preserved in a jar. You can swap it for fresh ginger if you prefer.
Make sure you buy plain canned salmon that doesn’t have added high FODMAP ingredients like onion or garlic. You can use fresh salmon if you prefer, but you will need to cook it first.
Buy a bunch of spring onions/scallions with long green leaves. You can use the green leaves in your low FODMAP meals, just make sure you avoid using the white stem and lime green stems as these are high FODMAP. Once you've harvested the leaves pop the spring onion/scallion bulbs into a glass of water on the window sill. The leaves will reshoot so you can harvest them again.
The amount of wheat in regular soy sauce is low FODMAP, however if you are feeling concerned you can buy gluten free soy sauce (Tamari).
