1/2 cup honey
2 tbsp. soy
2 tsp. five-spice powder
4 cloves garlic, minced (or 3/4 tsp. garlic powder)
4 6-oz. salmon filets (skin on or off, your choice - I like mine off)
1. In a small bowl, combine glaze ingredients. Stir well.
2. Season salmon on both sides with salt & pepper.
3. Heat about 2 tsp. of olive oil in skillet over high heat until very hot. Add fish and saute until fish is just cooked through (around 2-3 minutes per side).
4. Serve fish with reserved glaze. Good accompaniments are green beans (sauteed in canola & sesame oils, seasoned with salt & pepper, lemon juice and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds) and white rice. Or, a salad of diced avocado, tomato, sliced jalapeno, chopped scallion & cilantro tossed with a light sesame-ginger vinaigrette.
