Hoisin-Glazed Salmon

While I wasn't wowed by this recipe, I have to give it props for being a ridiculously quick meal. Seriously. Twenty minutes, tops, if you're being slow.

Two tablespoons hoisin sauce (find it next to the soy sauce)
Two teaspoons honey
One tablespoon fresh orange juice (I just sliced an orange in half and squeezed it)

Position a rack in your oven to about 4-6 inches from the broiler and preheat it. Whisk the hoisin, honey, and orange juice together to create the glaze.

Season the salmon with salt & pepper. (When it's just me and Tim for dinner, I don't usually bother portioning it.)

Coat the salmon with half the glaze and put it in the oven. After about six minutes, pull it out and baste it with the rest of the glaze.

Return to the oven and cook until it's opaque throughout, about an additional 5-7 minutes.

Feeds as many as you need it to (for more than 4, double the recipe).
Difficulty: 1
Takes about 20 minutes.
