Spicy Honey Soy Glazed Salmon is a regular in our house, my husband is always requesting it and I love how quick and easy it is to make. I'm talking ridiculously easy, a perfect recipe after a long day of work. Serve it with a side of edamame you heat up from the freezer, making it a perfect weeknight dinner. With so little cooking, it gives you a lot more time for wine drinking and relaxing!
Plus salmon is good for you and it's all over the place here in Seattle. I'm going to have to add more recipes to my salmon rotation. I'm also going to have to figure out what to do with the 8 pound whole salmon I have in my freezer. I went to the market for vegetables and came home with that puppy, not sure how that happened. It will stay in the freezer until I get over the intimidation factor, whole fish that size wasn't something they sold at the A&P in Jersey City.

2 pieces of salmon fillet (approx 5 oz)
1/2 medium onion, sliced or chopped into larger pieces
2 tablespoons honey
1-2 tablespoons sriracha sauce
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
juice from 1 lime
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon olive oil
rice, for serving
Whisk together honey, sriracha, soy sauce, lime, mustard and ginger, and set aside.
Preheat oil in large non stick stove top pan over medium high heat. Once hot, place salmon (skin side down) and onions in the pan. Drizzle a little more soy sauce over onions and salmon and stir around the onions occasionally. After about 3 minutes flip salmon over and cook for another 3 minutes. Salmon should be just cooked through, if not reduce heat to medium and cook for another couple of minutes, once salmon is cooked remove from pan.
Add soy mixture to the pan with onions and let simmer for about 2 minutes.
Serve salmon over rice with onions and drizzling sauce over top.
