Asian Salmon

  • 1/4 cup Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
  • 1 tsp Sriracha
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 2 cloves Garlic, roughly chopped
  • 4 medium Salmon fillets

Brown Rice

  • 1 cup Brown Rice
  • 2 cups Water

Stir Fried Asparagus

  • 1 Tbsp Peanut Oil (or vegetable/canola)
  • 3/4 lb Asparagus (about 20 spears)


  • Whisk all of the marinade ingredients together. Gently poke the salmon fillets with a fork 4-5 times. In a plastic Ziploc bag or baking dish, pour about 3/4 of the marinade over the salmon. Spread the marinade evenly so the entire surface of the salmon is covered. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or up to 8 hours).
  • If using, prepare rice according to package instructions.
  • Preheat broiler of oven on high. Ensure rack is about 10 inches from the heat source/element. Line a small baking sheet with aluminum foil (shiny side down). Spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Transfer salmon fillets to the baking sheet, and space them evenly apart. Pour the marinade evenly over the top of each piece. Place pan into preheated oven, and broil on high for 10-13 minutes. Keep a close eye and be careful not to overcook.
  • Preheat peanut oil in a skillet over high heat. Once the oil just starts to smoke, add in the asparagus and fry for about 3-4 minutes, or until the edges start to brown. Pour in the remaining marinade from earlier, and toss to coat the asparagus, cooking for 1-2 more minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • When the salmon is cooked, the edges will be just starting to sear, and the glaze will be caramelizing on the surface. Remove from the oven, and serve immediately with asparagus and rice. Pour any extra sauce from the pan onto the salmon and rice.


This salmon would be delicious with pan fried noodles, steamed Asian vegetables, green beans, or even a baked potato!
I have not tried other cooking methods, but this salmon recipe could easily be pan fried, or grilled in foil packets on an outdoor grill.
*This recipe can be halved if preparing Broiled Asian Salmon for 2.
