Honey Chipotle Salmon

This super simple salmon dish warranted a this is the best salmon I have ever had from my father. Pretty big news around here for a man who dislikes salmon and usually doles out it’s pretty good even when I pull out my very best recipes. And even though this didn’t take too much in terms of cooking skills, I’ll take the complement every time because sometimes simple really is best. The sweet honey and spicy chipotle make a perfect glaze for the fish and would probably be delicious on all sorts of proteins. Cook on the grill or in the oven and you’ll have a delicious meal in about 15 minutes.
