Asian Glazed Salmon Recipe

I am not a seafood lover… or eater for that matter.  I never liked seafood whatsoever until my husband and I moved to San Francisco.  We were walking on the pier one day and decided to have dinner at Bubba Gump’s.  I usually would have ran in the other direction of a seafood restaurant, but I was starving, so I gave in.  With not a whole lot on the menu but fish, I decided to try a shrimp sampler.  Oh. My. Goodness.  It was amazing!  Sure, half of the shrimp was covered in coconut and deep fried, but it was a start!
 I have occasionally had shrimp here and there since we returned to Utah and finally decided to venture out in the world of seafood.  I thought that I would be able to eat salmon if it were smothered in a delicious sauce, and this glazed salmon did the trick!  Who knows?  Maybe I am finally maturing!  This salmon is definitely worth trying!

    Oooohhhh. This recipe looks amazing! I try to make fish at least once a week at my house and salmon is a favorite! I love the ingredients for your sauce. I just pinned this and can't wait to make a trip to the store to make it! I love the revamped look of your blog by the way ladies! Looking fabulous as always :) Krista

    Thanks for the great recipe. It sounds delish and I've been looking for a good recipe for salmon that would have a great taste. My husband loves salmon but I'm not a fish person. The only one I've liked was catfish and mahi mahi. Hoping this will make it so I like salmon. I've heard its all in the recipe and how its prepared. The first time I had salmon wasn't that great. I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like fish all that much, LOL
  3. This recipe was fantastic. The end result was perfect and my family loved the salmon. It was so simple even a noob like myself didn’t mess it up. I had to do a web search for “how to peel ginger” AND “what rack do you use when broiling” 😁
