How to Make Honey Mustard Salmon
Sake is Japanese rice wine and I love a bit of alcohol in my food. The sake rids the salmon of fishy smell and taste, and gives depth to the overall taste structure.
To spice up this honey mustard baked salmon, I also add a good pinch of cayenne pepper, which is my secret ingredient to jazz things up.
