Recipe: Simple Sweet & Savory Glazed Salmon

Hey everyone! I have a dozen or so half-finished articles lined up, so while I am plugging away on them, I thought I would publish my recent culinary adventure. First, a confession: I recently purchased 14 lbs. of wild-caught salmon from VitalChoice (arguably one of the best wild seafood sources in the world), knowing full well that I seriously dislike the taste of salmon. I do not mind them personally – I think they are swell sea creatures – but the taste of cooked salmon does not bode well with me. I will take stinky canned tuna over any sort of salmon any day. However, I know salmon is perhaps one of the healthiest foods in the world, and contains a myriad of antioxidants (astaxanthin for the win!) and omega 3 fatty acids. It is easy to digest, looks pretty, and is easy to prepare – but how do I get past the taste? Well, I thought, I love the taste of teriyaki or anything remotely resembling teriyaki, so that got my inner wheels turning about using my faux soy sauce (coconut aminos) and a sweet glaze to downplay the strong flavor of the fish. The results practically made me purr. For those of you without this salmon-aversion problem, friggin cook it however you want to, but this one will be a winner for anyone who thinks they cannot eat salmon.
