Fresh salmon is always best but I didn't feel like going to the grocery store, so I used this instead. Do use fresh salmon from your grocers seafood dept.

Combine all your ingredients (minus the salmon, of course!) and stir well. I like to let it sit out a little bit so all the spices marinate together well.

Spread mixture evenly over salmon. It can be a little runny. You may find it helps to save some of the glaze to coat the  salmon once or twice while its cooking.

Repeat. Make sure you use aluminum or that spilled-over honey will require some elbow grease to remove from your cookware.......Just want your clean up to be minimal ;-)
