Costco sells salmon fillets marinated in an asian sauce.  You can cook the fillets right in the metal foil container or remove them from the sauce and then bake or barbecue them.  I looked at the ingredient list and thought it would be easy for me to make.  I had all of the ingredients in the pantry or fridge to make the marinade.  I bought a package of salmon fillets to marinate and then would bake them in the oven.  They turned out very well, they were moist and had a nice flavour.  Both the DH and I enjoyed the dish.

Fish just out of the oven.  I like lining the baking tray with tin foil to make clean-up a lot easier.

The portion of fish that I had for supper.


2 to 2.5 pounds of salmon fillet (no skin)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 clove garlic, minced


Cut the salmon into serving size pieces, a bit larger than a deck of cards.  It is also easier to marinate the salmon when the pieces are small.   Into a zip lock bag add all of the other ingredients and swish it in the bag to mix the marinating ingredients.  Add the salmon.  Place in the fridge for two hours, lying the bag flat if possible.  Every half hour or hour flip the bag over.

Place the fillets onto a tin foiled lined baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees F for about 20 to 25 or until done.  You can also bake the fish on the barbecue.  Serves 5 to 6.
