Foil-wrapped salmon is one of the easiest way to prepare salmon. The active time is usually very short, takes 5-10 minutes but yields moist, juicy and delicious salmon baked in the oven.
One of the marinade I love for salmon is Chili-Lime sauce or marinade. If you have tried my Chili Lime Chicken, you will know just how amazing and mouthwatering the taste is.
However, this Chili Lime Salmon has a completely different recipe.
To make the Chili-Lime marinate or sauce, you need only a few key ingredients. I love Huy Fong brand (Rooster brand) Chili Garlic Sauce, which you can get easily now at major supermarkets and food stores.
The taste is absolutely delightful for salmon, with a nice heat (but not too spicy).
Adding honey and fresh lime juice pretty much complete the flavors for this oven-baked and foil-wrapped salmon dish.
There is no marinade time. Just spoon over the sauce, wrap up the salmon with aluminum foil and you are done!
