Salmon with Sweet Chile Sauce

    So incredibly fast and easy. Much simpler to leave the skin on, season only the top of the fish, and remove the skin prior to plating the salmon. Served with soba & broccoli. Very good.

    This was extremely simple and easy. The sauce you make reminds me of the bottled sweet chili sauce we have. Next time I might just use that and thin it out a little with some lime juice.

    This recipe was great!! It is sooo easy to make and flavorful. Next time i may add a bit of minced garlic to the coriander/salt mix for the salmon. I also used a bit more hot chili sauce and honey in the sauce. Served salmon with rice noodles and steamed broccoli. Yum!

    Quick, easy, delicious. My favorite kind of recipe. I used the smallest measure of chile sauce as I didn't think my 11 year old would like it too spicy but next time I'd use the full amount. I served it with couscous and steamed broccoli. We'll definitely add this to our frequent weeknight dinner meal rotation.

    Excellent recipe - tasty, quick, healthy. Perfect for a weeknight. Kids loved it too - left out the chili sauce completely, added more lime juice to balance the sweetness. BETTER THAN FRYING: fish broiled in the oven, skin side down. No flipping. No fried fish smell! Soba noodles are perfect with this along with any green veggie.

    WOW! This was so super easy and amazing. I already had all the ingredients on hand (minus the green onions which I didnt use and it was still great). I served this with pan grilled zucchinni. I will definitely put this into our rotation.

    This is a good recipe. I used wild salmon and the "wild" might have been too strong for this recipe. Next time I will use a farm-raised salmon. Otherwise, good recipe. Will try with maple syrup as my honey was pretty intense too. Good luck!

    Definitely one of the best recipes I've tried lately - superfast, excellent tasting, incredibly easy to make. Doesn't get much better than that. Start with really fresh wild salmon and pair with spring asparagus or baby bok choy. The salmon could actually be made any way you wanted - broiled or barbecued, for example. This sauce would be really good with shrimp too.

    We thought this was delicious! It was amazingly easy, as there was NO CHOPPING and from start to finish it really was less than 30 minutes! I boiled soba noodes for about 4 minutes, then tossed them with a few dashes of sesame oil and soy sauce. I opened a bag of frozen broccoli, water chestnuts, carrots, and snap peas - microwaved them to thaw and then sauteed them in a little sesame oil and soy sauce with 1 clove minced garlic. And I followed the directions for the salmon and sauce but skipped the green onions b/c my husband doesn't like them. I'd recommend making double the sauce if you like food a little wetter. Served dinner with pinot noir. I'd make this for company in a heartbeat (maybe using fresh veggies instead of frozen) - it was perfect, and so 5 STARS!

    Really wonderful and so easy! I lived in Japan for 3 years, and found the flavors very authentic. If you enjoy Japanese food, you'll find this dish quite yummy.

    This was a quick, satisfying weeknight meal. I had all the ingredients on hand and it went together in about 15 minutes. I used extra lime/honey mixture and some seasame oil to sautee spinach as a side-that turned out great.

    This was quick and easy to prepare; however, I wasn't able to detect the ground coriander, and would prefer a sauce that had a thicker consistency. Taste-wise, I thought it was okay, but I doubt I will make it again.

    This recipe has a permanent place in my kitchen. Never have I cooked salmon and had it turn out so well. I felt like I was in a restaurant. A leftover fillet was equally delicious the next day atop a spinach salad. Cook this one now!

    Delicious and easy! I followed a previous suggestion and broiled it rather than frying it. I served it with basmati rice and a cucumber-carrot slaw.

    Didn't have enough flavor for our family - especially the soba noodles as garnish, they were very bland and I added chopped cucumbers and carrots as well. We'll use the maple syrup/orange juice recipe that we found from Cooking Light instead.

    I love this recipe...it is super yummy and really easy...we have a 1 year old and it is so nice to not have to spend time preparing for dinners. We had it tonight and we love it every time. The sauce is yummy, I've used lemons instead of limes and it is great and goes well with other fish too. Totally recommend it, especially if you like salmon. The soba noodles are great as long as you toss them with sesame oil and soy sauce.

    This is probably one of the better quick meals I have made. The sauce rocked and made for a flavorful dish. Goes well with the Soba noodles.

    LOVED THIS! So did my husband. It is easy and full of flavor. I highly recommend!!

    Some of the best salmon we've made. I also drizzled the sauce over broccoli.
