Sweet Chili Salmon – quick and easy salmon with Thai sweet chili sauce. The recipe takes only 15 mins on skillet or you can bake it.

Thai sweet chili sauce is a condiment that I never run out in my kitchen. The reason is very simple; we are addicted to it and would use it on everything: sweet chili chicken, fried wontons, Thai lettuce wraps, or anything that I can dip into it.

I added some lime juice to the sweet chili sauce to dilute it a little bit. Lime juice is also great to remove the fishy smell on salmon, it also cuts the fatty grease from the salmon skin. Then chop up some cilantro leaves and add some sesame seeds into the sauce. Slather the sauce on top of the salmon and you will have the easiest, most delicious, and absolutely mouthwatering salmon dish for dinner. If you don’t want to pan sear your salmon, you may bake it in the oven. Either way, this dish comes together in practically 15 minutes.


Season the salmon with a wee bit of salt and pepper. Mix the sweet chili sauce, lime juice, sesame and cilantro leaves together. Stir to combine well. Set aside.
Heat up a skillet with the oil on medium heat. Pan sear the salmon on both sides, until cooked. Transfer the salmon onto a serving platter, add the sweet chili sauce on top of the salmon and serve immediately.

Cook’s Note:
You may bake the salmon at 450F for about 12 or 15 minutes or until they are cooked through.
