This was very good and easy! I made the glaze in about 5 minutes and allowed it to heat on the stove as I fixed the rest of the dinner. Served the salmon with sugar snap peas and a nice salad. The salmon was perfect after broiling about 10 minutes on low broil setting. (my oven has a high or low broil setting option.) Be sure to set the salmon the requested 6" from the heat. I also did not have low sodium soy sauce, so I left out the salt. The recipe says it serves 4, but it was a good amount for my husband and me since he is a hearty eater. Will definately make this again!
