Sweet & Spicy Salmon

Getting creative with mid-week meals can be complicated. Chicken, salmon, and veggies can get rather bland after a while, especially when you are trying to stay healthy! The other night I really wanted a lighter meal, but didn’t want it to simply be grilled. So I looked in my refrigerator and found some ingredients I thought might taste good together. I combined sirracha (2 tablespoons), trader joe’s sweet chili sauce (1/2 cup), and some honey (just a little squeeze) to make a simple, quick, and delicious salmon marinade. I marinaded it for about an hour, in a zip-lock bag (in the refrigerator), and then grilled it on the stove top (about 5 minutes each side, or until the salmon is flakey). It was light, moist, and scrumptious! Not too spicy and not too sweet, the perfect balance! The best part? It was so simple and added just the right amount of variation to the typical mid-week menu! I combined it with some brown rice (3/4 cup to be exact), quinoa would be excellent as well, and green beans for a complete meal!
