Salmon with Honey-Orange Glaze
Boston Globe on 1/19/2000- By Jean Kressy

This honey-based sauce makes a beautiful glaze that goes well with the rich taste of the salmon. If you coat the pan with cooking spray, it will prevent the skin from sticking and make the pan easier to clean.

3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
3/4 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
2 teaspoons country-style Dijon mustard
1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets

Set the broiler rack about 4 inches from the heat. Preheat the broiler and oil the broiler rack or coat it with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, whisk the honey, orange juice, hoisin sauce, five-spice powder, and mustard to combine. Place the salmon, skin side down, on the broiler rack. Brush the fish lavishly with some of the honey mixture, using a wide brush.

Broil, brushing often with the honey mixture, until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, 10 to 15 minutes. Serves 4.
