Sweet-Spicy Salmon

Honey accents the natural sweetness of salmon, and a little heat makes things interesting. Find Asian chili-garlic sauce in the Asian food sections of supermarkets.


  • 1½ tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon Asian chili-garlic sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons tomato paste
  • Pinch of salt
  • Olive oil
  • 4 salmon filet portions (approximately 1 pound total)
  • Coarsely chopped peanuts, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, chili-garlic sauce, lime juice, tomato paste and pinch of salt until combined.

  3. Cover the bottom of a baking pan with a little olive oil. Place the salmon filets in the pan, skin side down, and sprinkle lightly with salt. Spread the honey mixture over the filets.

  4. Bake for 12–15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the filets and how done you like your salmon. Top with peanuts and serve.
