As I write this, I am still savoring the memory and taste of the Sweet Chili & Garlic Glazed Salmon I fixed last night for dinner. It ranks right up there as one of the BEST pieces of salmon I’ve ever had (and I make salmon often!). UH-May-ZING!!!!

The recipe is so simple, yet I was amazed at just how fabulous it really was! My husband and I completely, 100% LOVED it! The recipe comes down to… marinate the salmon, then broil it! I know… EASY, RIGHT? Right.

Yet… there is so much flavor! Can you tell how excited I am to share this recipe with you today? While we were eating, I kept saying “this is soooo good”! Here’s how to make this delicious dish:

Make The Sweet Chili Marinade

Mix up the marinade in a shallow dish. The marinade consists of sweet chili sauce, orange marmalade (I used my homemade jam!), soy sauce, 1 clove of minced garlic and chopped green onion. EASY.

Making the sweet chili sauce glaze for the salmon.
In case you’re wondering, here is the sweet chili sauce I used. It can be found in the Asian section of most grocery stores.

I used this sweet chili sauce to make the recipe.

Reserve Some Of The Marinade For Later!

After mixing up the marinade, I reserved a bit of it in a separate container to drizzle over the finished salmon.

Some of the sweet chili glaze is reserved to add to salmon after cooking.

Prepare And Marinade The Salmon Fillets

I seasoned the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Note: this is “skin on” salmon. Got a large piece for $17 dollars at Costco… cut it into 7 fillets. Each serving will cost about $2.50 each, so it is less expensive (and healthier) than a Big Mac, and cheaper than ordering salmon in a restaurant!

Salt and pepper are sprinkled on fillet before marinating.

Place the salmon fillets into the marinade, SKIN SIDE UP.  *(Note: this recipe calls for 4 pieces of salmon; I only cooked 2 fillets, but made the same amount of sauce specified). Let the salmon marinade for at least an hour in the refrigerator. Do not turn salmon over.

Two salmon fillets are marinating skin side up before cooking.

Preparing To Cook Sweet Chili Glazed Salmon

Before cooking the salmon, cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, and then spray with non-stick spray. Trust me… you will be glad you did this at the end of the baking time. Clean up is a BREEZE, and the sweet chili glazed salmon will not stick to the pan!

Spraying a foil covered pan with cooking spray will help fish to not stick.

Place the marinated salmon fillets SKIN SIDE DOWN onto the foil. You can brush a tiny bit more of the marinade onto the fish, but be careful to NOT let the sauce “pool up” on the foil (cause it will burn!)

Marinated salmon fillets are placed on pan skin side down for broiling.

Broiling The Sweet Chili Glazed Salmon

Preheat your oven broiler. Once it’s hot hot, place the tray of salmon onto a MIDDLE RACK (about 5-6 inches away from the broiler unit). Broil for 7-10 minutes (mine took about 9 minutes), until the salmon is lightly browned and flakes easily. This is what it looked like when I removed the pan from under the broiler.

The sweet chili glazed salmon fillets are golden brown and flake easily after cooking

Serving This Dish

Place each of the salmon fillets onto individual plates. Spoon a little of the reserved chili glaze over the top. Garnish each piece with some toasted sesame seeds and a few chopped green onions for garnish (if desired).

Sweet Chili Glazed Salmon is topped with sesame seeds, green onions & sauce to serve.
Add a side dish or two… and BOOM!  It’s ready to eat… and let me tell you… this Sweet Chili Glazed Salmon is FANTASTIC!

The salmon is served with fruit salad and roasted vegetables.
Sure hope you will consider making this amazing salmon. The sauce is so good, I could eat it by the spoonful. I am confident you will enjoy this salmon as much as we did! Have a great day, and may God bless you with His presence!

Sweet Chili Glazed Salmon fillets, marinated in sweet chili sauce, garlic, orange marmalade & soy sauce, is a simple, delicious, broiled seafood dish!

Category: Dinner, Entree
Cuisine: Asian
Keyword: salmon
Servings: 4 servings
Calories Per Serving: 317 kcal
Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
  • 4 (6 ounce) pieces of salmon
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce (I used Mae Ploy)
  • 2 Tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 clove Minced garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons green onions , minced
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Additional chopped green onions , for garnish
  • Toasted sesame seeds , for garnish (toast seeds in dry skillet 2-3 minutes on low, stirring often)
  1. Mix the sweet chili sauce, orange marmalade and soy sauce together in a shallow baking dish.
  2. Add the sliced green onions and minced garlic to the sauce. Stir well, to combine. Measure out approximately 1/4 cup of the marinade; set aside (to drizzle over cooked salmon before serving).
  3. Lightly season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Place the fillets SKIN SIDE UP in marinade. Let the salmon marinate for at least 1 hour.
  4. Heat your oven broiler. Place an oven rack in the middle of oven (about 5-6 inches from the broiler).
  5. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil; generously spray it with non-stick spray (this will make clean up a breeze!).
  6. Remove salmon from marinade. Let any extra liquid drain off, then put the salmon SKIN SIDE DOWN onto the aluminum foil. It's okay to brush a little extra marinade onto the salmon, but don't let it "pool up" onto the foil, because it will burn under the heat.
  7. Broil the salmon for 6-10 minutes, or until browned and easily flaked in the middle. (Mine took about 8 minutes). When done, remove from oven, and place salmon onto individual serving plates. Spoon some of the reserved marinade over the top of each piece. If desired, garnish with toasted sesame seeds and additional green onion slices Enjoy!.

    • Hi, Kristen! I am out of state so my phone won’t let me make the official change to the software for the recipe, but the correct amount is 1 clove of minced garlic. I will change it permanently in the recipe card once I return home in a few days. Thanks for asking… can’t believe I left that out. I appreciate you calling it to my attention. Have a great day.?
