Dinner: Maple and Thai Sweet Chili Salmon

Makes 1 serving


  • Salmon filet
  • Thai sweet chili sauce
  • Maple syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 400 °F
  2. Line a cookie sheet with tinfoil
  3. Place salmon on cookie sheet
  4. The amount of Thai sweet chili sauce and maple syrup you will use depends on the size of the filet.  Because both sauces are rich in flavor you only need to use a small amount.  We recommend starting off by combining a small amount of each sauce together in a bowl and drizzling over the salmon.  You want to have a light coating.  Add more sauce as needed/desired.
  5. Bake salmon for 15 minutes
  6. Enjoy!
