Beautiful Thai-Inspired Salmon Recipes




Want a salmon recipe that will make your taste-buds sing? Try a Thai approach! The ‘big four flavors’ of Thai cuisine (sweet, sour, salty, and spicy) marry beautifully with salmon, providing an abundance of taste without overwhelming the fresh flavor of the fish. And the marinades/sauces that make up these dishes are good for you too – low in fat and calories, but very high in taste – a perfect compliment to the health benefits of salmon. Give one a try for dinner tonight!

Pan-Seared Salmon (with Tangy Thai Sauce)

This salmon recipe is melt-in-your-mouth delicious! Fillets of marinated salmon are grilled or pan-fried, searing in the flavors and omega-3 goodness of the fish. The salmon is then served with a tangy Thai lemongrass-honey sauce that marries perfectly with salmon’s natural flavors. A healthy, low-fat, and extremely delicious recipe that can be made in under 30 minutes. Great for an everyday dinner entree that even your kids will love.

This Chinese-inspired baked salmon is gourmet-delicious, yet extremely easy to make. You’ll love how the rich-tasting black bean sauce enhances the exquisite flavor of the salmon. This baked fish recipe also works with other types of fish, such as cod, sole, snapper, or halibut—all healthy and safe seafood choices (either fresh or frozen). This easy baked fish is superb for everyday meals, but also wonderful enough to serve to a taste-discerning crowd. ENJOY!

Baked Salmon in Red Curry Sauce

This baked salmon is aromatic and delicious. Salmon steaks or fillets are baked for 20 minutes in an easy-to-make Thai red curry sauce that complements the rich taste of the salmon. But unlike a lot of salmon sauce recipes, this one is lactose-free, calling for coconut milk instead of cream. If you’re game, cook or serve this salmon ​in a banana leaf boat (as pictured here) – “how to” link included with recipe. ENJOY!

Easy Baked Salmon in a Honey-Soy-Ginger Sauce

This baked salmon with a honey-soy-ginger sauce comes out beautifully, plus is easy to make. The marinade is a simple mixture of Asian sauces and fresh spices that comes out tasting similar to Teriyaki, but is essentially Chinese-Thai in origin. This is one of my personal go-to recipes when I want delicious-tasting salmon without too much fuss and bother. Great with rice, but also lovely with new potatoes—just spoon over some of the extra sauce from the baking dish and they’re yummy!

Easy Fish Curry (made with Salmon)

I recently made this fish curry with salmon, and it was very yummy. Salmon works extremely well with curry flavors, I find, especially in this recipe where the curry sauce is rich but not overwhelmingly strong. Frozen salmon works just as well as fresh. ENJOY!

New Grilled Salmon in a Lemongrass-Coconut Sauce

This Grilled Salmon with Thai Lemongrass-Coconut Sauce is just perfect for fresh salmon steaks or fillets (you can use previously frozen salmon as well). The sauce can be made up in minutes and is a delightful mingling of sweet, sour, and spicy. All these flavors come together in a lemony blend of lemon, lemongrass, coconut milk, honey, and a dash of spice (garlic and chili) for a salmon-perfect combination.
