Honey Sriracha Salmon

Sweet, spicy and savory are the perfect ways to describe this recipe for honey Sriracha salmon from Chef Savvy. The sweetness from the honey combated the Sriracha well, but the soy sauce in it helped to give it a nice Asian flare. I also love this recipe because it’s super simple and requires few ingredients. Try it yourself and let me know what you think!
