Honey Sriracha Salmon

This spicy-savory-sweet Salmon is made with a sauce you can use as a marinade, a dip, or a simple sauce to brush over any protein before cooking.  So tasty!

I cooked it on a grill pan on my stovetop.  This fish was pretty thin, so it took only 8 minutes to cook to a nice medium-rare.  I usually cook salmon about 12 minutes per inch of thickness, whether roasted in the oven or on the grill.
