This is may be only barely a recipe. I think I’ll file this under my halfway homemade tag… because it’s so easy. Which I like because some nights I just want something that I can make in about 15 or 20 minutes with little to no brain power. Not every night, guys, just some nights.
We occasionally eat fish or seafood at our house, and salmon is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I love this miso and honey variation, but when I’m feeling like spicing things up, this is a close second favorite.
8-10 oz salmon (if frozen thaw first)
2 tablespoons sweet and sour sauce (any brand you like or have on hand)
1/2 teaspoon chili garlic sauce (or a little more if you like more spice)
2 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon olive oil
salt + pepper
Simply grate or mince the garlic and combine in a small bowl or cup with the sweet and sour sauce and chili garlic sauce. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly oil with a little olive oil. Place the salmon on the prepared baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Then spread the sauce over the top. Bake at 400° for 8-12 minutes, until the salmon is cooked through (check with a fork in the thickest part before serving).
Cut the salmon in half (if it’s not already cut into two) and serve along side a big salad or steamed vegetables. I’m really into broccoli lately so that’s what I went with. If you love to make seafood, check out my favorite two seafood sauces! Happy (easy) dinner making to you! xo. Emma
