Sweet & Spicy Sambal Faroe Salmon

Sweet & Spicy Sambal Faroe Salmon
4 Faroe Island salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
3 tablespoons Sambal Oelek
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey or brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh herbs for garnish (such as cilantro or parsley)
Optional: 1 tablespoon sesame seeds for garnish
Prepare the Glaze: In a bowl, combine 3 tablespoons Sambal Oelek, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons honey or brown sugar, 3 cloves minced garlic, 1 tablespoon grated ginger, and 2 tablespoons lime juice. Stir well until the ingredients are fully mixed.
Marinate the Salmon: Lightly coat the salmon fillets with 2 tablespoons olive oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Brush each fillet with a generous amount of the glaze and let them marinate for 15-30 minutes.
Grill the Salmon: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the salmon skin-side down on the grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes. Carefully flip the fillets over, brush more glaze on the top, and grill for another 3-4 minutes or until the salmon is cooked to your preference.
Final Touch: Once the salmon is off the grill, apply the remaining glaze for an extra layer of flavor. Garnish with fresh herbs and, if desired, sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Serve: The salmon can be served alongside steamed rice, a fresh green salad, or your choice of vegetables.
