 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!

Servings: 4 Servings


  • 4 pieces salmon 6 oz.
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Orange Marmalade
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons green onion minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • salt and pepper


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Pour the reserved sauce on top of the salmon before serving and garnish with green onions.

  1. 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.

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

    1. 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. 🙂

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

      1. No, you will want to line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray it, then add you salmon to that pan to bake in the oven. Hope you enjoy your salmon. XOXO

  4. 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!

  5. 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!!!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

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

  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!

      1. Alyssa, I’m having a party & would like to know, if I can I make this the night before?

  10. 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.
