This Thai Sweet Chili Glazed Salmon in Parchment recipe is ready to eat in just 20 minutes and is more like a method of assembly than an actual of recipe. A salmon filet is placed atop a bed of carrot chips and snow peas before being garnished with slices of lime and glazed with thai sweet chili sauce before being wrapped in a parchment pocket and baked.

When someone asks you what you want for dinner, I’m guessing one of the last things you’d ever request is salmon. That is unless that person asking is a waiter and you’re sitting in a restaurant. But guess what? I’m about to change all that! My Thai Chili Glazed Salmon in Parchment is ready in just 20 minutes and even better, you can eat it at home in your sweatpants instead of dressing up to head to a restaurant. Don’t worry, I won’t judge.
This isn’t my first time creating a recipe that highlights delicious thai flavors. You love my Slow Cooker Thai Chili Peanut Meatballs and on a rainy day like today (the fourth consecutive rainy day!), my Thai Chicken and Coconut Soup totally hits the spot. And don’t forget my addictive Thai Glazed Cashews which are a copycat of my favorite Sahale snack mix.
If you haven’t tried cooking in parchment before, prepare yourself for a complete game changer. Cooking “en papillote,” the French term for “in parchment,” means that everything steams inside the parchment packet while in the oven. It also means less mess as you’re simply assembling everything within a piece of parchment and then placing it on a baking sheet before sliding it into the oven. Best of all, you can make this Thai Sweet Chili Glazed Salmon in Parchment ahead of time and refrigerate for several hours, then bake when you are ready for dinner. Perfect for an easy and delicious weeknight meal but also completely suitable for entertaining when you’d rather be spending time with your guests instead of camped out in the kitchen.
This Thai Sweet Chili Glazed Salmon in Parchment recipe is more like a method of assembly than an actual of recipe. Have children at home? They’ll love helping to prepare these! A salmon filet is placed atop a bed of carrot chips and snow peas before being garnished with slices of lime and glazed with Robert Rothschild Farm’s Thai Sweet Chili Sauce. That’s my shortcut to making this meal so quickly! This sauce stands out from the crowd as it uses Piquanté™ peppers. Sweet yet tangy, with just a hint of sea salt, this well-balanced sauce is not only delicious, but a terrific timesaver.
I’m thinking Robert Rothschild Farm’s Thai Sweet Chili Sauce would also be a great shortcut for these summer ready Sweet Chili Thai Peanut Hotdogs, holiday worthy Sweet Chili Garlic Glazed Ham and this incredibly easy Sweet Chili Pulled Pork.
