How To Make Firecracker Salmon
These oven-baked salmon fillets coated with a flavorful sauce are baked perfectly with crispy edges and tender meat on the inside for a filling meal.
In a shallow bowl, whisk together the minced garlic, minced ginger, olive oil, soy sauce, chili sauce, brown sugar, red chili flakes, and sriracha to combine.
Season salmon with salt, pepper, and paprika. Add salmon fillets to the marinade, turning each to evenly coat in the sauce.
Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 370 degrees F then heat an ovenproof skillet over medium heat with a small drizzle of oil.
Sear salmon for 2 to 3 minutes on both sides, undisturbed, to get a nice crust. Transfer to plate and repeat with remaining salmon.
Return all salmon fillets to the skillet. Alternatively, transfer to baking dish.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. Serve warm with chopped chives.
