Unbelievably tender salmon glazed with a garlic soy and sweet chili sauce and cooked under the broiler. Broiling salmon is quickly becoming one of my favorite ways of cooking it. Who knew placing salmon under the broiler would produce perfectly cooked salmon in minutes. In addition, it makes the skin unbelievably charred and the inside moist and tender.

For this recipe, we will be glazing the salmon with a quick 3 ingredient marinade which is simply a mixture garlic, soy sauce, and sweet chili sauce. The sweet chili sauce can be found at your local supermarket near the soy sauces. It’s perfectly sweet, salty and sticky and the addition of garlic and soy sauce make it the perfect glaze for salmon.
To begin, simply combine the minced garlic, soy sauce, and sweet chili sauce in a large bowl or zip-lock bag. Marinate the salmon in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour then transfer to a baking dish and cook under the broiler for 6-10 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through, depending on the thickness of your salmon. Serve with rice, steam veggies or noodles!
