Salmon with Soy-Honey-Chili Glaze

August 8, 2013 | Fish & Seafood,

salmon with soy honey chili glazeDo you ever wish you had something a little more special to eat for lunch at home? If you’re like me and you work from home alone, too often lunch is a bite of this or that – whatever is left from the night before usually. But I’ve been heads down working on my next cookbook and seeing all of the creative recipes from chefs start to roll in, I felt I just needed something a bit tastier for lunch.salmon with honey soy glaze uncookedThis recipe is for 1 serving, but you can do the same thing for even a large crowd if you want. I made a very simple glaze from soy sauce, honey, and a little chili garlic paste. I put the salmon filet with the glaze into a small nonstick skillet and covered it to simmer in the glaze for just a few minutes (it doesn’t take long to cook through a small piece of fish over direct heat on the stove).salmon with honey soy glaze cookingThen I removed the lid and let the sauce evaporate into a glaze for the salmon – this happens VERY quickly and can burn if you’re not watching. If it gets a little too thick, you can thin it down with a bit of water to pour the glaze over the fish.salmon with soy honey chili glaze 2I found some leftover cooked quinoa in the refrigerator and it made a perfect bed for the salmon. Now that’s what I call lunch!
