20 Minute Firecracker Salmon
20 Minute Firecracker Salmon. Pan fried salmon topped with a sweet and spicy firecracker sauce. A quick and easy weeknight meal!
- 2 salmon filets skin on
- 1 tablespoon oil
- ½ cup buffalo sauce
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- sliced green onions for serving
- crushed red pepper flakes for serving
Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a large skillet over medium high heat.
Once hot add in the salmon skin side down.
Cook salmon for 5-7 minutes on skin side (depending on size).
Very carefully flip salmon. If the skin is sticking to the pan give it more time to cook. It should release easily from the pan.
Continue cooking for 1-3 minutes or until the salmon is fully cooked and looks opaque.
Meanwhile add buffalo sauce, brown sugar and soy sauce to a small bowl and whisk to combine.
Brush the firecracker sauce on top of the salmon.
When the salmon is cool enough to handle peel off the skin.
Serve immediately with a sprinkle of green onions and red pepper flakes for serving.
