Salmon with Sweet Chili Sauce

In this recipe, pan fried salmon fillets are topped with a delicious sweet and spicy chili sauce. This recipe is quick and easy to make and has just 5 ingredients.

4 to 5 medium pieces of skinless salmon
½ cup sweet chili sauce (Mae ploy)
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp hot chili garlic sauce (or sambal oelek)
1tbsp olive oil
  1. First sprinkle the salmon pieces on each side lightly with salt and let them sit at room temperature while preparing the sauce.

  2. Make the sauce by first mixing together the sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, and hot chili garlic sauce in a large cup.

  3. Then pour this mixture into a small pot and heat it on medium high, while stirring constantly. Cook this for about a minute and a half, or just until it is hot and slightly bubbly. Then turn the heat off and let it sit while cooking the salmon.

  4. To cook the salmon heat a non stick pan on medium high. I highly recommend using a non stick pan to fry the salmon because skinless salmon tends to fall apart when pan fried, and this makes it so much easier.

  5. Then add the olive oil, swirl it around the pan to coat, and let it get hot.

  6. When the oil is hot add the salmon pieces and let them cook for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until each side is slightly browned. Depending on the size of your pan you may have to cook these in batches.

  7. Once all the pieces are browned on both sides, carefully remove them and place them on a plate.

  8. Then make sure that the sauce is still warm. If not simply reheat it and serve.

  9. To serve this salmon, you can either place the pieces on a platter with the sauce on the side and let each person add their own sauce; or place a piece of salmon on each individual’s plate along with a few side items and lightly top it with the sauce. Make sure not to add too much sauce because we don’t want the flavor of the sauce to over power the flavor of the salmon – you should be able to taste both the sauce and the salmon to get the full flavor of this recipe. This makes a great meal served with rice (white, brown or wild) and a steamed vegetable such as broccoli or edamame.
