Thai Baked Salmon Recipe


All I can say is AWESOME! My 8 year old daughter HATES (well let me say hated) salmon. The evening I made this, she refused to try it. We made her sit at the table until she had one bite. She sat there for about an hour and a half. FINALLY, she took a bite. She loved it! And it was cold! She ate the whole filet. I was shocked. She told everyone the next day that here favorite food was salmon now.


    6 x 6 oz sockeye salmon fillets, skin on or off
    Pinch of salt
    1/2 cup + 2 tbsp Thai sweet chili sauce, divided
    2 - 3 tbsp green onions, chopped
    Cooking spray (I use Misto)


    In a large baking dish, lay down salmon fillets in a row. Each fillet - sprinkle with a pinch of salt and top with 1 tbsp Thai sweet chili sauce. Brush or rub with your fingers to coat fish with sauce evenly on top, bottom and sides. Cover and let marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight is the best (up to 24 hours).
    Turn on oven's broiler on High and position top oven rack 5" - 6" below the heat source. Line large baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper, spray with cooking spray and place salmon fillets skin side down (if any). Coat with remaining marinade from the dish (if any).
    Broil for 8 minutes, rotating baking sheet once. Remove from the oven and brush top of each fillet with 2 tsp of Thai sweet chili sauce. Return to the oven and broil for another 5 minutes or until salmon has caramelized. Serve hot garnished with green onions, extra sauce (if desired) with brown rice or quinoa on a side.
    Storage Instructions: Refrigerate covered for up to 3 days.
