Foil-wrapped salmon is one of the easiest salmon recipes ever!
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.
Other Recipes You Might Like
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!

Chili Lime Salmon
Chili Lime Salmon - moist, tender and delicious foil-wrapped salmon marinated with chili-garlic sauce and lime juice. Easy weeknight recipe that takes 30 mins.
- 1 lb. salmon fillet
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Huy Fong Rooster brand Chili Garlic Sauce
- 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice

Spoon over to cover the entire salmon. Top with cilantro. Wrap up the foil sheets and make sure that there is no leakage.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, or until the Salmon is just cooked through. Serve immediately.
You may use another Chili Garlic Sauce you like. Taste the Chili-Lime mixture and adjust the taste per your liking. Add more lime juice and honey if you like.
this was very fast and i had everything in my kitchen so it was great. tasted fantastic; sweet, spicy, and garlicy. the recipe is easy and delicious.
Just tried this tonight. It was wonderful! Not too sweet, the tanginess of the line and a sublet heat from that garlic chilli. I subbed the salt with a bit of fish sauce and it worked pretty well. Salmon; moist and tender. Never had such good salmon before. Thank you for the recipe! It was so fast and easy to do.
Hi Yun, yes, fish sauce makes everything better. I am so happy that you like my chili lime salmon. Please check out all my recipes, they are all very good: https://rasamalaysia.com/recipe-index-gallery/
It looks very delicious. I will try. Thank you.
Just wondering about any reaction from the lime juice and the tin foil. Could I use parchment paper instead? We love salmon and this looks very interesting!
Put some non stick parchment paper on the tin foil then it is still sealed in the foil but not on the foil. Not done this but think it should work Jaclee
This looks awesome and yummy. My husband loves salmon and it is full of omega 3 fatty acids.. Gonna try chili lime salmon tonight! will let you know how it goes…i am sure i will good feedback to share :)
Tried this tonight! We are not salmon fans at all but really want to try and like it as it’s so good for you ?. We really enjoyed the salmon as long as there was plenty of that delicious sauce!! The lime juice helped cut through the richness! I think I might try this marinade/sauce with something else….any ideas??
Glad that you tried chili lime salmon. You can search for my chili lime chicken recipe. :)
