Just 15 minutes to Sweet and Spicy Baked Salmon, a delicious and healthy meal!

I love this incredibly simple, tasty, healthy Sweet and Spicy Baked Salmon recipe. My recipes are almost always easy but this one is especially so. This recipe also the perfect fusion of sweet and spicy or as like to call it swicy.

Sweet and Spicy Baked Salmon Ingredients

The salmon takes center stage with its rich, buttery, and slightly sweet taste combined with super healthy benefits like omega-3 fatty acids and essential nutrients. I have used both wild-caught and farm-raised salmon with this recipe so opt for what you prefer or what is available.

Wild-caught salmon offers a distinct flavor and texture, while farm-raised salmon tends to have a milder taste and a slightly fattier texture. You’ll save money on farm-raised salmon while wild-caught salmon tends to be lower in fat, higher in omega-3 fatty acids, and free from antibiotics and additives often found in farm-raised.

There are just four ingredients in the sauce: garlic, Sriracha, soy sauce, and honey. It’s SO fast and easy which is why I’ve made this one again and again.

I cheat a little more and use ready-made rice in a pouch which keeps this a true 15-minute meal. It only takes another 5 minutes to make your own rice, however, so by all means do that if you like. I have used white and brown rice for this recipe. While I adore the soft and mild flavor of white rice, I also appreciate the high fiber, low calorie content, and heart-healthy antioxidants that brown rice brings to the table, especially when I’m on a health kick.

I also like to serve this with my Garlic Snap Peas – so good and easy!!

Sweet & Spicy Baked Salmon

Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

This easy, healthy meal takes just 15 minutes from start to finish.


  • 4 salmon filets
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


  1. Mix together garlic, soy sauce, Sriracha, and honey. Place salmon filets in an 8x8 baking dish; pour mixture over the salmon to coat. (You can pop it in the refrigerator at this point before baking if you like).
  2. Bake at 400°F for 10-15 minutes or until salmon is cooked (I like mine about medium; in any case, do not overcook).
  3. Place on serving plates with a side of cooked rice. Spoon extra sauce over the salmon and sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions. Enjoy immediately while it's hot!
