We absolutely love salmon recipes because it is easy to put together. Salmon is very delicious so it is universally loved fish; it has a good amount of protein so it is quite good for you, and super easy to prepare.

I think I am quite obsessed with this “supper easy” thing. Anyways, this recipe is so simple and yet so elegant. Salmon fillets can quickly be marinated in the sauce, which is a mixture of chilli sauce and lemon juice. I have added some extra chilli flakes in the sauce and also in garnish.

That’s all to do, marinate and bake. The sauce is slightly spicy and yet pretty simple. I like to serve it with white or brown rice and some green vegetables. Enjoy!
