Top Tips: Salmon with a Sweet Chilli Kick

By Makebakeshare @makebakeshare
I love this quick and simple marinade as something a bit different from the norm for salmon. 
It also works well as a marinade for pork steaks or flattened chicken for summer bbq’s.
It’s quick to prepare and whilst cooking in the oven gives you plenty of time to cook the rice and steam some fresh vegetables to serve with it.
You can also add some onion and chopped peppers in the same dish as the salmon if you wish for a bit of extra colour and crunch.
