Sweet and Spicy Fish Fillets

Here's an easy glaze for that piece of fish you're baking/broiling tonight. Keep with the Asian theme and serve with a dollop of sambal oelek (red chile sauce) mayo and a side of slaw dressed with rice wine vinegar and sesame oil.

Sweet and Spicy Asian Glaze
Makes enough for two fish fillets.

2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons minced ginger
1 scallion, white and green parts chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
Pinch crushed red pepper (optional)

Whisk all ingredients together and use to glaze fish before baking or broiling.

(Hint: Cook the fish partially and then add the glaze in the last 5 minutes of cooking. Otherwise, the honey tends to scorch.)
