This recipe is quick and easy enough for a weeknight meal. The Firecracker glaze is made from brown sugar, low-sodium soy sauce, lime juice, Sriracha sauce, ginger, and garlic. The salmon is placed on aluminum foil and the glaze is poured on it. The foil gets wrapped around it and helps keep the salmon wonderfully moist.

The salmon only needs to bake for 18 to 22 minutes.

Tips for Making Firecracker Baked Salmon:

  • It’s best to use wild-caught salmon over farm-raised. The flavor of wild-caught salmon is better, plus it’s healthier.
  • If you don’t like to bake with aluminum foil, you can wrap the salmon in parchment paper instead.
  • If you want extra spice, add 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes to the glaze

This Firecracker Salmon goes great with steamed broccoli and a salad for a super light and healthy meal!
