  • Coat a casserole dish with olive oil. Poke holes in the salmon with a fork, then place into the dish. Pour reserved sauce over the fish, top with green onions, and season with salt and pepper. Marinate for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 C).

  • Bake salmon in preheated oven, uncovered, until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 25 minutes.

This is flat out unbelievable!! I added an extra tablespoon of brown sugar (my wife doesn't like it very spicy)and used Crystal Hot Sauce. The combination of hot sauce and brown sugar makes a wonderful glaze. I didn't know hot sauce and brown sugar went so well together. DEFINATELY WILL MAKE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read More

BAD BAD BAD. I don't know how this gets such high ratings unless the secret is in what brand of hot sauce you buy. I used Louisianna Hot Sauce and all I could taste was that along with a fishy taste now and again. My fish turned out kinda mushy too and I even cooked it for 30 minutes. Yuck. Read More

OMG! By far, the best salmon dish that I have ever eaten!! This recipe exceeds all other restaurant salmon, too! My sister came in town to visit and rather than go out to eat in frigid temps, we stayed in and made this dish---we were blown away by how great it tasted. Don't be intimidated by the amount of hot sauce...it really mellows with the baking. I will be adding this to my regular dishes. My kids didn't mind being guinea pigs with this recipe! Read More

this was just delicious! I took a little less sugar and butter to reduce the calories but it was still great. I also added a little fresh ginger which made it even better. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

We loved this recipe. In fact we d rate it in our top 10 favorites (so far) on this site! We followed the recipe as written. Any previous reviewer who s commented on the quantity of hot sauce being excessive is using the wrong type of hot sauce. Find a hot sauce (we use LA Gold) which has a spicy taste in addition to heat. There s a big difference. 5 stars Read More

This is super tasty! The salmon flavor does not stand out very well but if you don't like fishy flavor you might like this. Yummy. Read More

We enjoyed this recipe for the most part but I felt that the flavor of the hot sauce really masked the flavor of the salmon. This recipe would be well-suited for a person who isn't crazy about salmon. Read More

Excellent. I work with the chef who created this recipe. I was dubious as to the thought of Hot Sauce and Salmon--sounds like it would overpower the natural taste. I can assure you that it did not. We used Crystal's hot sauce followed the recipe and were very pleased with the results. -Andrew Read More

I was looking for a non-soy sauce based salmon dish. This looked promising because I had all the ingredients and I love spicy food. I'm sorry but I didn't care for it at all. I have variety of hot sauce and couldn't decide which one I should use so I used half hot wing sauce and half Asian rooster sauce. Read More
