Sweet Spicy Salmon is an easy-to-make, delicious seafood dish! Seasoned fillets are covered with a pineapple/Asian-inspired sauce and baked.
Preheat oven to 425° F. Line a baking dish (or small cookie sheet) with a large piece of aluminum foil (larger than pans so edges can be turned. Spray lightly with non-stick baking spray. **NOTE: If doubling recipe, use rimmed cookie sheet to have room for additional pieces.
Place salmon in prepared dish; leave 1" between each one. Lightly sprinkle salmon with salt/pepper. Drain pineapple rings, RESERVING JUICE FOR LATER. Slice rings in half. Place halved rings around long edges of fillets, and in between. Pull foil up to "snuggle" salmon so that any "runaway" sauce will be "held captive" in foil, once added. Set aside.
Make sauce: Place sweet chili sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar and pineapple juice (reserved from can) in a small bowl. Whisk well, to combine the ingredients. Spoon or pour sauce over the top of each salmon fillet, to cover surface.
BAKE, uncovered, at 425°F. for 12-15 minutes. Cooking time may vary slightly, due to thickness of fillets used. Check it at 12 minutes. The fish should easily flake with a fork when done. Immediately switch oven to the BROIL setting. Broil salmon for 2-3 minutes or just until the top and edges begin to blacken and crisp up slightly. Remove pan from oven. If desired, garnish each piece with chopped cilantro before transferring to serving plates.
Carefully transfer salmon (use a spatula) to plates to serve. Place pineapple rings around the edges. Spoon sauce from the pan over each piece. Serve, and enjoy!
