This is a very fast and delicious recipe that my entire family enjoys. It truly is a 30 minute meal. Serve with a green vegetable and rice, if desired.
Asian Sweet and Spicy Salmon
(click here to print)
6 Tbsp. honey
1/4 cup cilantro, minced
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, grated (I use my microplane grater--don't even need to peel the ginger!)
1 to 1 1/2 Tbsp. canned chipotle chiles, minced
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 lbs. fresh salmon fillets or steaks
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a half-sheet pan with heavy duty foil and spray generously with non-stick spray. Combine all sauce ingredients and smear about 1/2 cup of it over the salmon. I like to reserve some of the sauce to drizzle over the cooked fish.

Pop into the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. If your salmon has skin, make sure you remove it before serving.
