I was so excited when I found out this month’s theme for Recipe Redux: Spicy! After I got an amazing shipment of some Sizzle fish, I immediately knew what I wanted to make, salmon. Salmon is by far my favorite fish, I love it’s meaty, flaky texture and sweet but subtle taste. I am in love with Sizzle fish. First of all, they ship their fish directly to your door in pre-portioned servings, flash-frozen, pure and natural, which makes things so easy. Second of all, the quality of the fish is unbelievable, it is unlike any that I ever had before, so so good. The folks at Sizzle Fish help to make healthy living so incredibly easy and simple!!!

Since we had to make a recipe that incorporated some kind of spiciness, I decided to make some kind of marinade that would compliment the salmon without overpowering it.
Looking through the cabinet, a sweet chili sauce came to my mind, with the addition of pineapple to cut some of the heat, leaving just enough to tingle the taste buds. The sweet chili sauce contains very little sweetener, compared to around 1.5 cups in the same amount of sauce! It has just the right balance of sweet and spicy, without all of the added calories!
I hope you make this delicious salmon, it’s by far my most favorite recipe I have ever made, Thanks to Sizzle Fish for having the best tasting seafood out there! 🙂
