Broiled Salmon with Thai Sweet Chili Glaze

Marinated in sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, and ginger, this broiled salmon makes a lovely weeknight dinner.

Servings: 4
Total Time: 30 Minutes, plus 1 hour to marinate

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds (or four 6-ounce pieces) salmon, skin on or off
  • 6 tablespoons Thai Sweet Chili Sauce (best quality, such as Mae Ploy or Thai Kitchen)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce (use gluten-free if needed)
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and finely grated fresh ginger
  • 2 scallions, green parts only, finely sliced

Instructions

  1. Set the oven rack 5-6 inches from the top and preheat the broiler.
  2. Make the marinade by combining the sweet chili sauce, soy sauce and ginger in a shallow baking dish. Spoon 1/4 cup of the marinade into a small dish and set aside (this will be the sauce for the cooked fish). Add the salmon fillets, skin side up, to the remaining marinade and marinate for 1 hour in refrigerator.
  3. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Transfer the salmon fillets to the prepared baking sheet, skin side down, and drizzle a bit of the marinade over top. Go easy -- you don't want it to pool too much on the baking sheet because it will burn in the oven. Broil the salmon for 6-10 minutes, or until browned in spots and almost opaque in the center. Transfer the salmon to a serving platter and pour the reserved sauce over top. Garnish with scallions and serve.

  • Thank you for sharing this recipe. I made it for some friends and it was a hit! I didn’t have scallions so I sautéed red onions and orange peppers, put it on top of the salmon then drizzle the remaining sauce on top. Delicious!! Oh and I was asked to share the recipe of course. 🙂
