  • 1 lb salmon* (453 g)
  • kosher salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp Trader Joe's Sweet Chili Sauce


  • Preheat broiler on low and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place your salmon skin-side down (if there’s skin) on the parchment and pat dry.
  • Sprinkle liberally with kosher salt.
  • Add a few cracks of pepper and some garlic powder.
  • Drizzle sweet chili sauce evenly over all salmon. Use your hands or a spatula to spread it around to cover the tops.
  • Broil on your second highest rack for 3-6 minutes or until the tops start to caramelize and salmon is done to your liking. (Optional: Broil on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute at the end.)


*Farm-raised salmon is much higher in fat. If you’re using a leaner salmon, like Wild Caught Alaskan Sockeye, make sure to keep an eye on it so you don’t overcook or it will dry out. Sometimes the fillets are thin and will just need a few minutes in the oven.
