This quick, easy and delicious Sweet Chili Soy Glazed Foil Baked Salmon is an easy family pleaser! No fishy smell or flavor – just a delicious rich fish!
I love sweet and slightly spicy asian inspired dishes- and there is no dish that better compliments sweet chili than a quick baked salmon. Today I am sharing my new favorite asian-inspired fish dish – in a super easy to clean foil pouch!
Foil pouches are the perfect way to cook fish quickly and easily- and keep cleaning to nothing.
Plus, cooking fish in a foil pouch keeps the house from smelling fishy (like pan-frying can sometimes do) and helps marinades soak in without spilling all over!
This recipe is so simple- its just place and drizzle. Seriously!!!
First off, we’re going to drizzle the fish in soy sauce to let it really sink in, and then finish it off with the sweet chili glaze.
After your fish is glazed, fold a foil pouch over it, and pop it in the oven until it is opaque, or even until the fat releases slightly. That’s it!
I really love this recipe because it has just a tiny hint of spice – so my kids are good eating it. It is also just a touch sweet (let’s face it, sweet fish sounds just plain gross…), with delicious hints of salty soy and garlic.
This recipe is crazy low cal- it clocks in under 165 calories and is very low carb! If you’re watching your sodium, opt for a low sodium soy sauce, or even coconut aminos if you’re skipping soy sauce and want a paleo diet friendly dish.
This goes great with rice, over a big salad, or even in a taco or fish sandwich!
