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
