Thai sweet chili sauce is a condiment that I never run out in my kitchen. The reason is very simple; we are addicted to it and would use it on everything: sweet chili chicken, fried wontons, Thai lettuce wraps, or anything that I can dip into it.
The good news is that little G has started to eat some mildly spicy food and he doesn’t even know that he is eating chilies. He has also started to eat salmon so I paired my simple pan-seared salmon with a jazzed-up version of Thai sweet chili sauce.
I added some lime juice to the sweet chili sauce to dilute it a little bit. Lime juice is also great to remove the fishy smell on salmon, it also cuts the fatty grease from the salmon skin.
Then chop up some cilantro leaves and add some sesame seeds into the sauce. Slather the sauce on top of the salmon and you will have the easiest, most delicious, and absolutely mouthwatering salmon dish for dinner.
If you don’t want to pan sear your salmon, you may bake it in the oven. Either way, this dish comes together in practically 15 minutes.
