Grilled Sriracha Salmon with a Peanut Crust

So what's all the fuss about this sriracha hot sauce? I've had a bottle in my pantry for quite a while but it would only come out for various Asian dishes. I figured that it's about time to look into some other uses. This time of year is tailgating season which means my calorie intake on any given Sunday can easily exceed 3000-4000. Yeah, don't ask. With that in mind I usually need to heavily compensate during the week with some really light and healthy dinners.

Alaskan salmon along with some broccoli is usually my go to light meal. The problem is that I don't really like it. Well, I found this sriracha based salmon recipe online and it is amazing. This is officially my favorite salmon recipe. I modified the technique to include grilling the salmon (or course), but you could always bake it. Check out this peanut crusted sriracha salmon recipe. It's amazing and really easy!

1-2 T Sriracha Hot Sauce (the cool red bottle with a lime green top and a rooster on the side)
