Salmon Fried Rice from Leftovers

1 carton of Chinese takeout regular rice (you forgot to order the fried rice instead)
however much leftover salmon you have
couple of green onions, sliced (or that half a regular onion in the fridge)
leftover baby carrots (you always make too many)
soy sauce, orange sauce, and Chinese mustard packets (see takeout above)

Saute the onions and carrots in a couple of tablespoons of oil in a big pan.
Add salmon, flaked out with a fork
Add rice and stir everything up for a while
Add a couple packets each of the soy and the orange stuff and 1 packet of the mustard.
Stir some more until everything is heated through.



Kool Aid - Think before you drink.

Brilliant, mud!

Just the kind of "making a silk purse out of a sow's ear" meal that I love!

I feel it necessary to add that a good rice cooker is essential to anyone trying to live/eat cheaply. Mine got me through college and I still use it every week. I've probably cooked LITERALLY a metric ton of rice in it over the years. Why rely on leftover takeout rice when you can make your own for $0.50/lb or less?

I keep my rice in one of those HUGE clear plastic container store things, the ones that are like 3' long and a foot deep/wide. I keep it full (takes about 80lbs of rice).
