This simple recipe makes a great salmon glaze. The sugar in the seasoned rice vinegar caramelizes under the broiler and the sweet, salty vinegar works perfectly with the tangy mustard. While my original recipe only had two ingredients, I've added Sriracha hot sauce and a pinch of salt.

Another winner from Chef John. Easy, fast, delicious. Had no rice vinegar, so used red wine vinegar. Had no Sriracha, so used Texas Pete. Happy wife. I'm happy. Everyone's happy. Read More

I added more rice vinegar, honey and a little tarragon. Whole different level. I'd give it 3. 75 stars without the extras. Read More

This has become our 1st choice salmon recipe. We used to always grill (which is terrific), but winter weather drove us inside. The recipe is foolproof, but I find that with thicker salmon, I have to cook it on a lower oven rack first and finish it under the broiler in order to have it cooked through. Read More
