Asian Sesame Salmon

 What an easy and delicious recipe!  If you have all these spices in your cabinet, this is a must try.  If you don't, go to the grocery store and buy them.  This recipe is too good to pass up!

2 lbs. Salmon Fillets
1/3 Cup Honey
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 Teaspoons Toasted Sesame Seed
1 Teaspoon Minced Garlic
1 Teaspoon Minced Onions
3/4 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
1 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper (optional)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a small bowl mix honey, soy sauce, and all of the spices except the Red Pepper together until well blended.

Stir in Crushed Red Pepper.  Paul and I added a bit more than the one teaspoon is called for.

Place salmon on a 13x9 baking sheet.  If you can, line the sheet with aluminum foil...this recipe tends to end up a bit messy.
Spoon honey mixture evenly over salmon.

Bake Salmon in the oven for 20 minutes, basting occasionally with honey mixture.

Since we were having asparagus with our salmon tonight, I decided to put some of the honey mixture on the salmon too.  I recommend doing this, and then baking the asparagus for about 8 minutes.

If you have any honey mixture left when you take the salmon out of the oven, feel free to add a bit more on top.
