Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 ½ lbs center-cut salmon
  • ½ tsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 1 large red pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped baby corn

Instructions

  1. Place the oven rack on the top rack. Preheat oven to broil. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, onion poswer, and garlic powder. Set aside.

  3. Put salmon on prepared baking sheet and season salmon with salt and pepper. Brush two tablespoons of glaze on the salmon and place under the broiler. Broil until the glaze starts to turn brown and caramelize, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully move the rack down to the middle. (Be sure to keep your eye on the salmon and make sure it's not buring, if it starts to get too dark, take it out, and move the rack down one more notch.)

  4. While the salmon cooks the first time, toss the veggies with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk cornstarch into glaze.

  5. Scatter the veggies around the salmon and place back in the oven (you should have moved the rack down to the middle). Cook anothe five minutes until the salmon is cooked through and the veggies are slightly softened and cooked.

  6. When the pan comes out of the oven, brush the samon with a little bit more glaze and then toss the remaining glaze with the veggies in the same bowl you used earlier. Portion out salmon and serve with veggies.
