You know that phrase, “You’ll catch more flies with honey than vinegar.” Well, that is probably true. My cousin was just telling me about a Berkley study on kindness and how being kind gets people farther in life than being connected.
Anyway, I’m straying from the topic. The point of the fly-saying is that if you’re nice to people, you can usually sway them from being mad at you. This works especially well if you’re in the workplace, I’ve found.
If you’re in the homeplace, however, you will also attract more potential suitors with honey than vinegar. Take some honey, put it in something savory and whoever you’re dining with will probably want to marry you. Unless of course you’re dating my boyfriend who found this dish too sweet. (Luckily I’ve already wooed him with other culinary delights.)
Also this is super, super easy. (I just love cooking fish. It’s so easy and quick!)
I took the four 4-ounce salmon fillets and put them in a baggie with a marinade of soy sauce, Sriracha sauce (my dad calls this “chili paste”) and honey.) It sat for about 30 minutes out on the counter in room temperature.
Then I dumped the whole thing into a greased baking dish and baked it.
The fish went on a plate, the sauce went in a bowl and dinner was ready.
