IT Guy won’t touch fish. Won’t. Touch. It. So of course if I ever want it, I have to have it when he’s not around because he really doesn’t even like the smell. But I love salmon and when my DIL gave me some salmon the other day I knew I’d have to cook it for myself for lunch. And that’s just what I did. This recipe makes enough for 4 salmon fillets but you could probably do 6 with this amount of glaze. It’s super good if you like salmon like I do. Whip up a yummy side dish with this....rice or risotto comes to mind. Kinda fancy but oh so simple!
