Time for Thai Grilled Fish With Chili-Lime Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by TXOLDHAM

This was in my clipping stash which I am trying to clean out. Salmon is not traditional Thai but with the typical Thai seasonings, it should fit right in. The sauce is optional but sounds delicious. I am always looking for fish recipes as we try to incorporate 2 to 3 servings a week.

Am I glad you posted this from your clippings to here-this was so, so good. We made a half recipe of the marinade and a double recipe of the dressing so we could spoon it over rice. It was a sensational combo. I reduced the tablespoon of oil in the half mix of marinade to two teaspoons and would just put in one teaspoon or none next time we make this. We are currently eating fresh fish every second day as we catch it and this has been another amazing find in my quest to keep the fish meals interesting. This one will definately be repeated.
