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.

  1. Marinade:.
  2. Combine garlic, cilantro, fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar, salt, pepper, and oil in a food processor or blender and grind to a smooth paste. Transfer to a large zip-lock bag and add fish fillets. Turn gently to season well. Set aside for 30 minutes, or refrigerate up to 1 day.
  3. Sauce: Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl, stirring to dissolve sugar. Sprinle with chili and cilantro and set aside.
  4. Coat a grill rack with cooking spray and preheat, or lightly oil a shallow baking pan and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Remove fish from marinade and cook until done, turing once, about 5 minutes per side.
  5. Arrange on serving platter along with a small bowl of sauce, if using, to spoon over the fish. Serve hot or warm.
