Thai Sweet Chili Salmon

At first I was going to name this recipe weeknight sweet Chilli Salmon but honey, this salmon is so good you will want to eat it on weeknights, weekends, and special occasions! Thai sweet chili sauce is sold in most grocery stores and it is a sweet sauce that’s used as a dipping sauce in the Thai and Asian food scene. That ingredient added to the 2 other make the sauce sweet and savory -which compliment the fish perfectly. I paired this with mashed potatoes and spinach and it was absolutely delicious! Enjoy the recipe and as always please let me know how it came out for you!

  1. Made this for New Year’s Dinner……needless to say, there was none left!! Thank you for sharing this delectable recipe that was enjoyed by the most critical (pseudo chefs) in my family😍😍😍

  2. Wasn’t sure how much honey to use so without paying much attention at first, I used 1/4 cup of honey. Is that what it should be?

  3. Made this last night with spinach, brown rice, and baked sweet potatoes and it was the bomb!!! I didn’t have enough honey so I added maple syrup to the honey I had and added some minced garlic 😍

  4. This looks delicious! I’m not very good at winging it though what are the measurements you would suggest for the different spices?

  5. Looks great! Are there recipes for your sides in the picture?

  6. This may be the easiest/quickest salmon recipe I’ve ever made, and it was delish. Perfect for busy week nights.
