Super Delicious Firecracker Salmon

Oh my word, did we devour this Super Delicious Firecracker Salmon? Not a crumb was left.

The Super Delicious Firecracker Salmon has been on my to-make-list for such a long time. I saw the recipe on Pinterest, it looked so good. Luckily I found the recipe, eventually on Café Delights, thank goodness.

I am fortunate to get prime salmon and other delicious seafood from Threestreams, selling from Scansa Trading.They are in Montague Gardens, Cape Town. With this recipe, you need about 80 g per person, so although salmon is on the pricey side, a little goes a long way.Super Delicious Firecracker Salmon

We are in autumn going into winter at the moment, so in the afternoon light to shoot in goes away quickly, especially if it is slightly overcast. So, sadly I marinated the salmon and then did not have enough light to shoot the recipe. In the end, it worked out well, because the salmon stayed in the sauce for 2 days and the flavor was just so insane, I will do it like that again.

Super Delicious Firecracker Salmon

serves 6


30 ml finely chopped garlic

15 ml grated fresh ginger

45 ml olive oil

45 ml dark soy

30 ml hot sauce – I used Smokey Tabasco

30-45 ml honey

6 x 80 g salmon fillets

5 ml smoked paprika

1 red chili – finely chopped

1 green chili – finely chopped


In a stainless steel or glass bowl, mix all the ingredients except the salmon fillets. Place the salmon fillets in the sauce, cover with clingwrap and leave in fridge for a couple of hours – overnight worked best for me.

Preheat the grill in your oven. Spray a baking sheet with Spray n’ Cook. Place the salmon fillets on the baking sheet and place under the grill. Keep your eye on it, it will burn quickly. Grill for about 10 minutes. Brush once or twice with the marinade. Serve with sticky rice, chopped chili, soy and coriander on the side. Delicious!
