I haven’t always been a big fan of salmon, or any other fish that, well, tastes like fish. But it many instances, I have had salmon prepared a certain way so that the fish flavor was barely there, and the sauce was just so amazing, I would have eaten just about anything that was covered in. This Chili Glazed Salmon with Siracha Cream Sauce Recipe is one of those instances. I had some fresh salmon on hand, and went to work creating a deliciously sweet chili glaze sauce, and then went a step further and made a quick Siracha cream sauce. The combination of the two flavors was excellent, and my husband and I both really enjoyed this Weight Watchers salmon recipe. I’m so happy that I’ve found another great way to get more salmon in my diet! Enjoy.
