Swicy Salmon

“Swicy” is a new food trend sweeping 2022 – a perfect combination of sweet and spicy. I was so excited to try it on salmon! As a family we try to eat fish at least once a week to get all those great omega 3s. It paired perfectly with mashed potatoes and garden fresh green beans.

These fillets came together quickly and easily for our weeknight dinner. Leftovers were great over salad, too!

Servings 6


  • 2 tbsp hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 6 Four 5-ounce center-cut skin-on salmon fillets, about 1-inch thick
  • salt and pepper


  • Preheat an outdoor grill or grill pan on medium high. 
  • Mix together the hot sauce, brown sugar, paprika and cayenne in a small bowl. Transfer 1 tablespoon of the mixture to a large bowl and whisk in the mayonnaise; set aside the rest of the sauce. Add the chives, celery and onions to the bowl with the mayonnaise and toss well. 
  • Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper. Brush the grill grate lightly with oil. Lay the salmon on the grill, skin-side up, and cook until distinct grill marks appear and the salmon releases easily from the grate, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and brush the fish with some of the reserved sauce. Continue to cook the fish, brushing the pieces periodically with the sauce, until the salmon fillets are glazed and just cooked through, 13 to 15 minutes more.
