This was an absolutely delicious glaze! I will definitely use it again. Keep an eye on your broiler, though %u2013 mine runs hot, even for a broiler, so I only ended up cooking the filet for four minutes, by which point the glaze was well-browned and the filet was cooked to about medium, which is my preferred doneness for good salmon.

This was some of the BEST salmon I've ever had!

The taste is great. Trouble was I overcooked it and it turned into a candy/toffee like texture.... hardened when cooled and did not spread well onto fish. I WILL make it again (because it had a great taste), but I will add more ginger, boil for less than 20 minutes and cook the fish for a shorter period of . I found 8 minutes resulted in a very well done fillet.
