Pacific Northwest Honey Glazed Salmon Recipe

Let me start by saying that I am not a huge fish fan.  I want to like it.  I’m a Northwest girl.  Fish is our thing!  It’s healthy and good for me.  My husband is a fly fisherman and catches trout, then makes it this big ritual to clean it, put it on the grill, and have it for breakfast.  I know I should like fish, especially the ones he catches, but it’s just, well… not easy.

But then I tried this salmon recipe and DEVOURED it!  Not kidding.  Loved it so much.  Which is not normal for me.  I was in charge of our last cooking group and knew I needed to throw in a couple of fish options for summer.  So I scoured my cookbooks, and eventually landed on one that I could modify a bit. This is the result.

So, for all of you fish-haters out there- even YOU may like this one!  And for those of you who love salmon already…. well, to you it will be just a little slice of heaven.
