Sweet Chili Garlic Glazed Salmon

A five star salmon recipe with a delicious sweet chili garlic glaze on top.  The glaze caramelizes the salmon as it broils and will become an instant favorite that you will make again and again!


 I am so excited to be an ambassador this year for The Salmon Council.  If you have been following the blog, then it is no secret that I love salmon.   I love working with companies that I am truly passionate about.  Salmon is such an important part of maintaining a healthy diet.  February is American Heart Month and it is so important to add Omega 3 fatty acids to your diet.   Salmon is perfect for adding in your Omega 3 fatty acids and it is also enriched with protein and Vitamin D.  Did you know that adding in salmon to your diet can help to reduce cholesterol and lowers your risk of a heart attack by one third?

Yeah, salmon is awesome.  I declare this recipe the BEST salmon glaze ever.  I made it three days in a row it is so good!  Even if you aren’t a huge salmon fan, start with this recipe.  The glaze is so good you won’t be able to get enough.

salmoninpanSweet Chili, soy sauce, orange marmalade, and garlic all come together to create one amazing glaze.   These beautiful pieces of salmon soak up the marinade and get broiled in the oven.  The marinade caramelizes on top while they are being broiled, creating an amazing crisp flavorful crust on the top.


As soon as they come out of the oven, you drizzle those babies with more of the glaze on top.  Trust me, you won’t be able to get enough!

Just thinking about this salmon makes me want to make them again.  Sigh.


Did I mention that this is the BEST salmon ever?  I have got lost in talking about the deliciousness of this salmon. 🙂  Perfectly flaky and the caramelized crust on top is perfection!  A five star salmon that comes together with minimal ingredients and only takes about 5 minutes to cook.  So easy to make my seven year old could probably do it!  Speaking of my seven year old that hates all food….  he loved this salmon.  Just sayin’.

This salmon flaked perfectly with the fork.  The flavor is amazing and it is such a good feeling to know that you are eating something that is so good for you and delicious!


As you already may know, I made a goal to eat better this year and salmon has been a huge part of reaching those goals.  Sometimes it is hard on a busy day to make a healthy meal.  That is why I love to meal prep and I especially love these new product finds from Rubbermaid.   The Lunchblox Salad Kit is my favorite!  It is perfect for packing my salad, snacks and salmon inside.  It comes in handy when I am on the go and even has a snap in blue ice to keep everything chilled!   I have also LOVED my shaker bottle and it is perfect for my protein shakes before I head to the gym.


All of these things combined have helped me to eat delicious meals and keep up with my heathy goals.  If you are a salmon lover like me, then you are especially going to love staying connected with Hooked on Salmon through Facebook and Pinterest.  I always love getting new ideas and ways to cook my salmon.  🙂

Well without further ado, here is the recipe.  Make it.  You are going to love it just as much as we did!

A five star salmon recipe with a delicious sweet chili garlic glaze on top. The glaze caramelizes the salmon as it broils and will become an instant favorite that you will make again and again!
Serves: 4
  • 4 (6 oz) pieces of salmon
  • ¼ cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1½ Tablespoons Orange Marmalade
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons green onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper
  1. In a shallow baking dish, combine sweet chili sauce, orange marmalade, and soy sauce. Whisk to combine and add minced garlic and green onions. Reserve ¼ cup of the marinade. Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper and place facing down with the skin side up in the dish and allow to marinate for at least one hour.
  2. Preheat the broiler and make sure the oven rack is 5-6 inches down and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray with cooking spray. Take the salmon out of the pan and shake off excess marinade. You don't want the marinade to pool up on the foil. Place the salmon fillets skin side down on top of the aluminum foil and broil for 6-10 minutes until browned and opaque in the center.
  3. Pour the reserved sauce on top of the salmon before serving and garnish with green onions.

  1. We have been searching for the perfect salmon recipe and now we’ve found it. This looks amazing!

  2. My mouth is watering!!! Can’t wait to make and EAT this amazing looking salmon!

  3. This looks delicious! I just want to confirm that you marinade the salmon skin down. Thanks!

  4. Rafia Awais says:

    I’m gonna make it tomorrow!!! 🙂 Is there any specific sweet chili sauce which you recommend because I have seen using different brand sauces yields different tastes. Thank you.

  5. Sounds delicious and EASY! Pinning, and I will try this for sure!

  6. Made this tonight. It was very delicious, the flavours were amazing. Glad to have found the recipe!

  7. There’s sweet and salty soy sauce, which one did you use for this recipe?

  8. Bill Hirst says:

    This looks great. I’ll try it this week!

  9. Have been looking for a good salmon recipe! I’ve never bought sweet chili, so I don’t know what it is. Very anxious to try this!

  10. Which sweet chili sauce do you recommend. I have a hard time picking one afraid it will not give it the proper taste,

  11. If I don’t want to broil…what would the baking directions be?

  12. This was awesome! The only comment I have is that the “Total Time” should really include the marinating time. I glanced at the time requirements and the ingredient list before going to the store, and had planned to make this for dinner last night. I didn’t realize that it had to marinate for an hour, so I did not start in time to serve my kids at a reasonable hour. So we had it tonight instead. But in terms of flavor — it was amazing and the whole family really enjoyed it!! We will definitely make this again.

  13. Made my mouth water.

  14. Making this tonight. Except we like salmon cooked medium – not opaque in center. Got some sockeye to try out with this marinade – love the sweet chili sauce/marmalade combo! Thanks!

  15. This was amazing! My husband who does not usually like salmon had 2 helpings!! Will definitely be making this again and again and again!!! Thanks do much for passing along!!!

  16. I agree to add the marinating time to prep time as we ended up eating really late! Also I believe it needs to say 1 1/4 C Sweet Chili Sauce?

    This recipe is a great mix of flavors – thank you!

  17. This was AMAZING!

  18. This is so delicious! But can I bake it instead of using the broiler? Moms broiler doesnt work n im cooking at her place

  19. Thus recipe sounds so delicious! I bought asparagus to serve along with it, any recommendations on how to cook it? Never made asparagus before.

    • You can either boil it in water until tender for about 5 or so minutes or you can broil it in the oven. Drizzle it with olive oil and broil it until the edges are crisp and it is tender about 8-10 minutes. 🙂

  20. JANE ANDERSON says:

    This is our only salmon recipe, since I can eat it! Great stuff. I only had chili garlic sauce one time, so I added honey, omitted minced garlic. Still good. You must have the orange marmalade, though.

  21. Wow this was sooooo delicious!!! I used Mae Ploy sweet chili sauce that I found in the Asian isle. Definitely a new favorite.

  22. Bianka Giroward says:

    I will make this tomorrow sounds amazingly good and easy
    Thank you for Sharing

  23. Can this be cooked on the grill? If so what temp and how long?

    • Absolutely! I actually just made some chicken with a similar glaze today. It was incredible. I would grill it on a cedar plank or make sure to oil the grill and place the salmon skin side down. It usually takes about 12-15 minutes on medium heat. 🙂

  24. As I don’t easily find chili sauce where I live, what would you recommend me to add instead?

  25. What’s the nutritional information?

  26. That looks so good I may have to try it tonight. Thanks for sharing.

  27. I made this for dinner tonight for the husband & he loved it! We are always looking for new salmon recipes & this one was amazing! Will be making this again soon!

  28. Amber McNeill says:

    I’ve never made salmon before, but this looks fantastic and I can’t wait to try it. With such a long prep time though, could I marinate the salmon overnight?

  29. This was awesome. The first time I’ve made salmon and it turned out perfectly. My husband LOVED it!

  30. I make this dish all the time, and my boyfriend absolutely loves it! I usually bake at 425 and serve it on a bed of quinoa. The sauce is amazing and the salmon always turns out amazing!

  31. I made this last night and my family loved it. I didn’t have the orange marmalade but used peach preserves and I have to admit that this was good and I don’t eat salmon. Thanks for sharing.

    • I made this last night and my family loved it. I didn’t have the orange marmalade but used peach preserves and I have to admit that this was good and I don’t eat salmon. Thanks for sharing. I also baked for 12 minutes at 425 and then broiled to carmelize the top

  32. Do you know the calories of a serving?

  33. I looked through the threads and didn’t find my question. Is it sweet chil sauce (sometimes called sweet chicken chil sauce) or is it chilli garlic sauce?

  34. Just made this and it was seriously one of the best things I ever made!
    I had to adjust it a little – instead of orange marmelade, I juiced half of an orange and added a tablespoon of honey. I also used regular chilli sauce. Side dish was potatoes and broccoli.

    The flavours are so subtle and its just delicious. I will definitely make this again.

  35. Tried this recipe and it was very good my husband also had seconds. I don’t have a lot of time with having two small children 1yrs & 3yrs so I went with baking at 425 for about 20-25 minutes. I also used the entire jar of the sweet chili sauce which was about 1 & a half cups total. Also, I didn’t have the orange marmalade so had to use apricot jelly same amount. It tasted great still but I would still like to try with the orange instead but would use either to make this again as a regular for weekly meals.

    Thanks for the recipe.

    Made this last night with Coho salmon. Followed the recipe. Served it to my very picky and vocal family. Very successful! Received the “you can make this again”. Thanks
