  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok on a high heat until shimmering. Add the spring onion whites and the chilli, and fry for 30 secs until lightly golden in places. Add the garlic and fry for another 30 secs, stirring continually, until fragrant.
  2. Add the rice, breaking up the grains with your hands as it goes into the pan. Stir-fry for 2-3 mins, breaking any clumps, until the rice is piping hot and the grains have separated. Stir in the spinach and fry for 2-3 mins until wilted.
  3. Stir in the salmon, sweet chilli sauce and lime juice. Toss gently to coat everything in the sauce and cook for 1-2 mins until the salmon is piping hot. Scatter with the spring onion greens, coriander leaves and salted peanuts to serve.
