Thai Sweet Chili Salmon

Thai sauce on salmon

Thai Sweet Chili Salmon

Like I said, I eat a lot of salmon. I like the flavor of the fish, I like it simple but I also love experimenting with different flavors in general. It felt like a sweet and savoury, saucy type of salmon night. So I made a sweet chili marinade: I started with some Thai sweet chili sauce, then added the rest of the ingredients as I tasted and went along with it. Add, mix, taste as I go – the way of cooking I like best. I think this one worked out well, and was well recieved. The sauce complimented the sweetness of the fish nicely – it was sweet with a slight hint of spiciness.

1/2T scallion, green parts, sliced diagonally


1. Season both sides of salmon with salt and pepper.

2. Mix the next four ingredients (chili sauce to garlic) together, taste. If you like it spicier, add some chili flakes, or sambal oelek. If you like it sweeter, add sugar.
