  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1 lb Salmon Skin on, cut into filets, seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup Bottled Thai Sweet Chili Sauce I prefer Trader Joe's or Thai Kitchen


  1. Heat a large non stick skillet over medium heat with oil. Season Salmon filets with salt and pepper on both sides.

  2. Place skin side up and cook for 3-4 minutes, depending on thickness. If fat pockets start coming out, then lower the heat. Flip Salmon over to skin side down and cook for another 3-4 minutes. 

  3. On the last minute of cooking, pour sweet chili sauce over the tops of each filet. Allow to simmer for a minute, remove and serve immediately with either cauliflower rice (pictured), or white/brow rice, quinoa, noodles, or zoodles.

Recipe Notes

Most important tip is to not overcook the salmon, You want just a slight bit of pinkness in the middle.
