Sweet Sambal Salmon Fillets

READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by Rita1652

There are many hot chile pepper pastes used as table condiments in China and Southeast Asia; I used sambal oelek which is the most common and most popular. Containing chiles, salt, vinegar and sometimes garlic and tamarind, the fiery paste gives food a powerful flavor boost giving this Salmon recipe an Asian flair. Serve on a bed of greens to keep the carbs down or on a bed of rice.

wow this recipe is great. Wonderful taste. I broiled the salmon in the oven until ready. I let the salmon in the marinade at least 45 minutes. I had to omit the ginger because I didn't have it. This is a recipe that I will do often for me and DH. Thanks Rita :) Made for PAC Spring 2013
